Tear on lower eye lid

I rescued him about 9 months ago, and I can honsetly say, it was the best decision of my entire life.

The question: So ever since I have had him he has had a tear on his lower eye lid, its a very weird place to get a cut, I think. So, what do you think caused it? Why is it their? He is actaully a very strange horse, as he always finds ways to cut himself, all over. He is the perfect definition of "emo". But never, since I have had him, has he had any problems cutting his eye lid... I think the cut, or tear, is very strange :\

Its only on this one eye, not the other one.

Doesn't take much. Poked it on barbed wire trying to scratch, or something. Obviously it doesn't bother him now.

My QH gelding has part of his lower lid missing due to an accident as a foal. He does quite well. When the flies get bad, I put a fly mask on him.

That's actually a fairly common injury. He probably had an itch...
