Pin firing marks at the back of the hocks for the treatment of curbs (inflammation of the tarsal ligament). The skin was burned in multiple focused areas to cause inflammation and stop pain. Curbs can be very painful and occur with excessive strain from training or from trauma though this is usually just in one limb.
