    This is so helpful - I really need to flesh out my kit! I keep seeing honey listed - I'm assuming it's just to get the horse to take meds as needed? Or is there some other use for honey I'm missing? Thanks!

    'Activated Manuka Honey' is for applying to wounds - it heals them really fast with very minimal scarring see pic below of friends horse - the injury shortly after it happened and 5 weeks later and the horse back in work

    How would you wrap a wound on the leg to stop it from bleeding? A book I have says to put a medicine of somesort, then cotton or gauze, then vetwrap. What medicine would you use? Would corona work?

    I use it all the time on the chickens, since the others will keep picking at the wound. Never used it on any of the larger animals, though. Make sure you use multiple layers of gloves, otherwise your hand will be purple.

    Having just had a horse with a recent injury I want to reiterate how useful this thread is. Can it be condensed somehow so we can just get a full list of ingredients?
