Scars? How'd they get there?

This is kinda random, but some of the horses at our barn have CRAZY scars.
Our oldest guy a 29yo OTTB, Book of Flowers
Has barbed wire scars on his hocks, and his hip is all grey because he broke it.
I could go on about the other rescues, but I won't
I was grooming Alibi the other day, when I noticed she had an x shaped scar on her back leg.
The other one is healing. We got ourselves caught in some fencing that was down. Luckily nothing worse happened.

Does anyone else have pictures of scars?
I know that's so weird, but I figured I would ask

Green Broke
Well I don't have any pictures right now but my mare is covered in scars, and I mean covered. She was a rescue from a humane case not to long ago and I really wonder how they got there. I hesitate to say she was abused as I really don't think she was. To me it seems fencing was most likely neglected and she got caught up in it.

She has scars covering both back legs and quite a few on the insides of her front legs. Also all over her backside and up over her hips. She's a very light grey so the areas of black really stand out. I should get some pictures one of these days.

I wish horses didn't need to be fenced. Haha

My boy has a large one over one of his eyes, and freezefiring scares on his back legs. He also just took a chunk out of his face the other day, right above the scare that's already there, so he's going to have another one now.

Bell has one running in the left side of his blaze,towards his left eye.
It nearly touches his eye and starts at his blaze :)
