Have the farrier come out an see if he can get them to open. Then epsom salt soak and I like to pack with sugar-dine and put a 'boot' on to keep dirt out.

He said they were abscesses , but they're all holes.

Abscesses cause holes when they blow out.

Are you expecting the holes to close up? Where are they? Usually they need to grow out depending on the size.

No, I want him to be able to stand up without being in pain, and be able to walk. They're near the front part of his hoof, but they're long. One trim won't take them away.
