My suggestion is when he is feeling better to take him for walks/rides/pony him. My bfs 28 year old tb looks like a 10 year old because my bf works him, and hard (he knows his horse will work until he drops dead, so he knows when to quit, but he will run that horse up a mountain and boy, that old horse has power). I think he will be ok, if he is anything like my older arab he is tough and to stubborn to give up that easily :). Also same tb had an abscess like that, don't know what it was from but they lanced it and cleaned it, gave him antibiotics and he was fine. He could have a bad tooth that got infected.
