not to scare you, but that looks a lot like my mare's stifle injury that she had when she was 3. It was called a sequestrum and it was a piece of dead bone fragment that was irritating the muscles and bones around it. She had hers for about a year and it would continually come open and never quite healed. We had hers removed by surgery and she has been fine since. HOWEVER, sequestrums are pretty rare. So rare that my 45 year old vet had never seen one in person. So it is entirely possible that it is something else. Definitely have your vet check it out asap. Reoccuring wounds are never good.
