Rear feet leg burns

My uncle came to look at my horse today and he said it appears he has rope burns on both rear legs about maybe 2 inches or so about the top of huff, on rear of leg. He said it might take longer for it to heal because of the way the legs flex as the horse walk, or the way the feet buckle at that area.

Thoughts?

My thoughts are why does your horse have rope burns on his legs? Someone does not know how to hobble correctly. Who ever it is I would not be letting them try to teach my horse anything.

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
