My Tbs have those darn abscesses all the time. They can be dead lame form them of they can hobble along depends on the horse and their individual pain tolerance I think. Do you notice him laying down alot more than normal especially at night? Mine usually take about a week to three weeks to "blow out" then we put them on antibiotics. I've tried some pain meds with limited success. I'm thinking that the swelling is Osselots (and most likely permanent) but if they are "set" no problem, and the camped out front feet or leg is an abscess forming.
That would be my guess...
