How do you know that an abscess has popped?

Hi April-Rose! You can ask your question to @zoetis, they are specializing in horses's health !

Good luck !
they wont be lame, the wrap will stink and you can see where it popped. there'll be a nasty yellow puss on the wrap
My horse has one and they usually can’t put pressure on there hoof which has the abscess sometimes it bleeds in a certain spot or clear stuff comes out which is what happened to my horse
The bad smell will be gone
