Spotting an ulcer early?


Has anyone got any tips on how to spot an ulcer early?
There is a horse down the stables that managed to cut her offside hind, inside of leg, level with the hock a few weeks ago (I only heard about and saw it today), the girls have been applying bandages and antiseptic ( ) cream but from what I saw it didn't exactly look as if it was healing!
The wound itself is from what I could see today a flesh wound although obviously it may have been a laceration that has started to spread, it is about 5cm x 5cm in size and as it has been there a few weeks I am concerned that it maybe starting to ulcerate - basically on the hock I know that is most certainly NOT what we want to happen.
I should hopefully be taking a picture of it tomorrow to show my vet and I might as well put it up here to see what you all advise. The owner is a bit of a cheapskate and of the 'old school' and so I need to get as much evidence as possible to convince him that the vet is a good idea.
