We found out on wednesday and because of the holiday we haven't heard back from anyone or been able to get in touch with any vets.
I take care of a warmblood mare who had OCD in her left hock, and had surgery years ago at Purdue in Lafayette, Indiana. She had multiple bone chips that were removed. She was on stall rest for quite a while. It's been about 5 years, but I remember having to re-wrap her hock every day.

Now she's perfectly fine, and is never lame. The vet did warn us that she would only be able to be ridden lightly for the rest of her life, and she would more than likely get arthritis eventually. There is no scarring. Her left hock is very slightly larger than her right, but unless it was pointed out you wouldn't notice.
