[RC] [RC] Burn Injury from Hot Ash - Patti

It appears it is not more than a 2nd degree burn with a diameter not more
than softball size.  Think of hot gravel and that's what it looks like 

If it's warm and seeming to hurt more, I would have a vet look at it. There could be debris or infection under the visibly damaged skin, and it might need to be debrided. If it is infected and not treated (burns often require systemic antibiotics) it could definitely affect more of the leg/hoof/horse.
