Dr. A took less than 2 minutes to identify Tommy's new abscess. It is above and just slightly to the side of the original abscess site, nearest the bulb of the heel. Dr. A cleaned it out and took off the heel so there was nothing to hold the infection and we were sent on our way.
I'm so glad that it was not nearly as bad as I was afraid it would be. I was imagining all kinds of repeat scenarios with the abscess. We'll be back to riding in no time!
In the meantime I've been going through all kinds of horse tack and equipment and listing it on ebay. This is what I have listed so far:
