Usually a horse that is injured on a hind leg will have a knot or two by their tail head and up near their last rib. The ones on the tail head are pretty evident. They lovvve looovve lovvee when these are rubbed out. Most horses will lean back if you start rubbing in this area.

Glad to hear he is doing well!

Here are some pictures from the day after his trim. His feet have grown a suprising amount since then, and will definitely ready to have the walls rolled on Sunday.
He is getting around okay- a little gimpy/tender on rocks without boots, much better with boots, but stiff in his hocks/hips/shoulders either way. He moves around willingly all day- both in the pasture herded by his bossy parture mate, and turned out to roam arond the barnyard/driveway to eat his hay in peace.

Wow, it does look much more better. Maybe within the next few months, you won't even be able to see where the injury was.
