Looks like bucked shins -- and you can get them in older horses but not nearly as often as in young horses like 2 and 3 year olds.

If a horse get a hard hit on the front of the cannon, you can also get a rupture of the extensor tendon sheath which allows the fluid (similar to joint fluid) to escape and form a large, soft, hot swelling.

You can never go wrong with ice, cold hosing or DMSO (with or without steroids or antibiotics mixed in it). Any fresh inflammation or hot spot gets DMSO and ice at my house -- every single time.
