blistered legs  
hello. are these blistered legs of this horse? if a horse get struck by tendinitis once in its life time, are there chances for occur again in its life?

I do not see any blistering, fron a picture it is hard to come up with any diagnosis - but it looks like there may be some type of skin infection, or the horse may have rubbed its' leg.

As far as tendonitis, that would depend on the use of the horse, how severe the initial bout is and treatment the horse receives. It may never occur again, but then again it might. Very hard to tell.
