Your horse may have lymphedema in that leg. If so the fluid you see leaking out is lymphatic fluid. That means something is wrong with the circulation in that leg but I won't guess at what could have caused it.
If that is what it is it needs to be managed before bigger problems arise, especially as it is so close to the foot.
Sorry but a vet is required. Maybe you could send the description & some pictures to a vet at a lower cost than a visit or set up a payment plan?
