UPDATE

Dr. Jeremy got out and check Rosie out.  Abscesses are so hard to figure out and donkeys are so stoic it is almost impossible to get them to react to hoof testers.  He found a soft spot at the coronet, and thinks it might blow on it's own pretty soon.  

He also said to give her bute, which I had been told years ago bute makes it last longer.  Don't know if the rules have changed or if I was given erroneous information.  What he said makes sense, the more comfortable she is, the more inclined she will be to move around, which will hopefully help the abscess to move on out.  

So we'll give her a couple of days and he said he'd come back out if it didn't pop.
