Abcess and Bruise withing 2 months of eachother???

I have had my horse for about 7 months now and about 2 months ago he developed a small abcess that was easily taken care of on his right front foot, the farrier put a pad on that foot and when he came back this time to take it off there was a bad storm andwe were in the barn with low lighting. 3 days later I came out and my horse was extremely lame on his fornt left foot, the farier was out 30min later and he found a large bruise, he said it was either caused by theshoe being put on his foot so it was pressing into his sole on accident or somthing got in between the foot and the shoe. All of this seems to make sense because when he put the shoe on that foot my horse kept lifting it up and then putting it down so he was kind of on his toe -i was told he was just a little sore. We found the bruise on monday and even the BO who feeds the horses in the mornings didnt notice a limp, is it possible that the bruise got progresively worse over the course of 3 days? I have been keeping the foot wrapped and using something called Animalintex, has anyone ever heard of that before? It has worked pretty well but he still has a limp (not half as bad) after 5-6 days! How long does it normally take for bad bruises to heal and how can I prevent future incidents like this? Thanks, Moei
