Yeah.. WTH is that????????????????????????????????

Since he's going to be a bay (or maybe buckskin), maybe he had an injury there where his hair grew back in dark like he'll shed out to be and it stands out against his lighter colored baby fuzz.

^yep....something big on that knee....

In ^ that pic, we are looking at something that sticks outward, and is large and dark, and is on the LEFT knee....in the other photos, it is more of a divot, as in, sunken, almost like a large ringworm splotch that has deepened (or appeared to in the photo), or a healing circular wound of some sort, and is on the RIGHT knee, not the left...weird. Am I missing something?

In all the pictures it looks like a protrusion on the right knee to me... but I'm pretty confused by now as well :)

Yeah.. this all looks like a protrusion on the right knee. The dark color may be because it was clipped and adult hair is growing in OR it may be an abscess that has drained in that area.

Look closer. Have a vet look too. It could be synovial fluid and not a big deal (unless it hardens). It could be serious. Looks like it isn't bothering him now.

Get a vet exam with Xrays of that knee before separating with your money.
