Regardless, the burn location should not effect how it heals, I'm assuming you're talking about the fetlock joint....basically the ankle. Since its not on a constant state of movement and its not in a place that's contantly bent it should heal fine.
yeah im not sure why they were there. I didnt notice them the first day I went and looked at the horse and rode him. He was even clean from a bath right before I went to see him. I gave the guy a $100 deposit and told him I would pick him up a week and 2 days later as I would have finished my stable and stuff by then. I mean overall I am satisfied so far with the horse, got him yesterday. I am overall satisfied with the guy I bought him from. I did notice the horse looked as if he lost some weight since I saw him 9 days ago and maybe since the guy knew he him sold, maybe he gave the horse less to eat than the other 4 he had there, not sure. He also said the horse I bought is the least aggressive one of the bunch so maybe he never got much food as the horses bullied him. I mean he was in decent shape. I would say a 4 on that scale thing that you use to judge a horses condition.
So yeah i'm not sure how the marks got there in 9 days unless I just didnt see them that day. He told me the first day that the other horses had marked him up some too
