A horse will show symptoms within 3 to 14 days of exposure so that should be enough time to quarantine a new horse.
I've dealt with Strangles many times in the past and, truthfully there isn't much you can do except to keep it clean. Vets strongly advise against antibiotics saying that it slows down recovery.
