Ouch that sounds bad. I wonder if an abscess could have developed that quickly. Can your farrier get there quicker?

Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.

if it took a long time it was probably because not many people have given a horse aspirin so they didnt want to answer falsely

I would try to get the farrier out to see if theres something bigger going on.

Yeah poor guy. I wish the Farrier could. We can't get a hold of him. We've been trying and trying because all the horses are over due for trimmings.

I didn't think about not many people giving aspirin because it sounded so common I guess when se told me about it. Like I said above we can't get a hold of our farrier.

we always have tubes of them around just in case like when my gelding got an hoof absess and couldnt walk on his front leg, it helped a lot, and he's walking much better over a week later. We gave him it for 4 days 2 notches a day, he's 16hh and very muscular and probley 1400 pounds.

Google aspirin powder for horses. It's been around a long time.
If your horse is that sore I don't know what a farrier could do.
He may need X-rays &/or nerve blocks to pinpoint the problem.
