Question Callus on hocks??

I am looking at a two year old palomino mare. The lady that is selling her said when she was twelve hours old her hocks heated up and swelled up and the skin kind of peeled off of it. They treated her with nurlex or something like that. Started with n. Every time she got up from laying down it would open them back up from it rubbing when getting up. So now they have developed into calluses. She said it isn't in the joints or anything. I called my vet and talked to them about it and she said it could be from not dipping the cord in iodine when she was first born and could of got infection in the joint. Vet said best thing to do would get x rays of joint.
Was wondering if any one else had comments on what it is or what to do? Wonderful horse just don't know if it will effect her in long run if she will become lame.
Thank you!

I would take the advice of your vet and if you are really interested in her, get some x-rays just to see what (if any) damage there is and get the vet's opinion on what you might be able to expect as she ages.
