Deep abscesses are not as big of a problem as you might think, that comes with serious, serious cases. If your boy only has a single abscess, I would let that rupture, or have your get out to lance it and prescribe antiobiotics for the post-rupture to prevent infection, but that's really it.
Keep in mind that anything he comes in to contact with as far as bodily fluids (if he happens to rupture on a hard surface, the buckets he eats and drinks out of, and probably the rails of the round pen too) will need to be disinfected after the abscess has come to head and completely drained.
