They whanted to fix it but the vet said there was no hope and that the hock was fractured so badley it would never heal so he was put down.
That seams to me as a problem with the owner, not checking the trailer.

Exactly!!! I would say that the butt bar injured the horse and they couldn't fix his hock. Not the shipping wraps killed him... You can use hock wraps in combination with shipping wraps if the horse tends to get hock rubs in the trailer. These could have possibly helped this situation...Like these:

Hock Boot - Dover Saddlery
Cashels Boomers Hock Socks - Dover Saddlery - I use these.
