Wow. I've never seen that before. Can't quite imagine how painful that would be!

Wow- none of the abscesses I've encountered resulted in anything solid that could be pulled out and held in your hand! Ouch!

His was pretty icky. It was uncared for and soaking in mud for who knows how long.

I had a minor heart attack when I pulled it out. I was still picking off mud and stuff when I grabbed this and I was like OMG I KILLED MY HORSE, but then I realized what it was

One of the best things I have used to help draw the yuck out of an abcess once it's open is sugar and iodine. Make a paste out of it, put some on a gauze pad, place over the abcess and wrap it up. The sugar helps draw the infection out and the iodine kills it.

It looks like a chunk of hoof. What did the farrier have to say it was?

It was a chunk of hoof, which is why it was so scary to pull out. The farrier said it wasn't anything to be worried about, just to keep the hole clean and it will grow back. He said it was because his abscess progressed all the way to pretty much the end with no care
