Mine it depends on the horse. Shiloh is a goober, if there is something to get cut on she will find it. Anything goes on her she gets cuts body-wide.
The rest are pretty cut free, and they rarely bite each other hard enough to break the skin. I'm actually having a hard time remembering the last time one of them was cut. Around the face, ears and eyes have been the main call the vet spots this summer

My gelding gets scraps just shy of where the saddle goes. I guess he's trying to tell me something, lol. He just loves picking fights so he has scraps everywhere, but he has never been seriously injured.

My mare has never been marked she is in the field with one other horse and she and another mare are inseperable, they never even put their ears back at one another. It's really cute actually.

Daytona (she's not really mine; but I'm interested in her! ) usually gets scrapes on her shoulder area sometimes. Nothing big though.

I need to clarify. Vida had a tick way down in her ear that got infected and Shiloh got poked in the eye by something that got infected. Thus the vet visits. Not really scrapes but I guess they qualify

Brickens gets cuts all over his bum, face, and feet. Almost everyday he has a new scrape or bite mark.

Gem is low man, so he has a few bit marks near his bum and a few scrapes on his legs.
Vega usually didn't get picked on, until she was in a fight. She got cut up (on her sides, and her bum) but she usually gets scrapes around her face/neck area. She's a bit of a clown sometimes.

Montana hasn't gotten a scrape since I've had him.
