As far as I know they are only rarely something that negatively affects the horse. I know a few two year olds who had rather large splints as two-year olds (most young horses get them, racing around the pasture) but they diminished as the mares grew older, so they are no longer noticable at all.

I know of one gelding who was thought to have a lameness problem from an old splint, which is -very- odd, but the last I heard, it was still kind of questionable what the problem was. It could have ended up not being the splint at all.
