    Okay and of course Lyric has to drive me even more nuts with first Lyrae acting like she was having the baby early to Lyric knocking her scur off, and now Lyric has a strange lump on her butt! What could this be? It doesn't feel hot, just hard. Doesn't seem to really bother her any.

    This is the side without the lump. (left)

    This is her right side.

    Above view.

    And as a side note she has really bad gas.

    Hard and not squishy...not an infection...more like maybe she got shoved against something? Since it just appeared and wasn't something you noticed before, I'd say trauma. ( maybe she's always had gas and you just weren't close enough to that area to notice before??)
    Try a cold pack on her if you can, if it's just "bruised" flesh the swelling will begin to go down.

    in her old home was the shelter or anything wood? My goats love to rub their butts up against things, so a splinter could be a possibilty
