Foal umbilicus at 2 ½ months. Dry and OK with ultrasound exam. Not painful and not draining so it is not infected. This will eventually dry up and disappear but the hernia may need correcting in the future. I do not do surgery on umbilical hernias but instead wrap them (see other images and video).
