Granulation tissue filling an injury of the hoof 

granulation tissue

The new, well perfused fibrous connective tissue that develops in healing wounds. Ideally it forms in the depth of a wound and grows until it fills out the wound completely before turning into more solid scar tissue that is covered by skin. The limbs of horses are liable to develop an excessive growth of granulation tissue that vastly exceeds the dimensions of the original wound. This is known as proud flesh.
