Blargh, I missed a ton of posts. Don't know what happened, none of them showed up when I first came to this thread. o_O
Funny story: I was soaking my mare's front foot with Epsom salt once, and she was standing in her crossties all fine and dandy. Then she happens to look down a bit, sees the bucket "eating" her foot and totally panicks. I just laughed at her and set her back up. ::rolls eyes:: Silly mare. =P
You're right on the money with the salt and poultice. You'll have to keep it up until the abscess blows out. You'll see a horizontal "crack" in her hoof, that's when you know it blows out. =]
