Have you ever used honey to cure your horse's wounds?

Have you ever used honey to cure your horse's wounds?
Thanks everybody for the answers!
Very interesting! I didn't know honey could be used to care horses!
yes, and it really helps.
Yes! My new forest mare had a puncture wound in her leg and we used honey and it worked well! I think it was manuka (probably spelled differently) honey on her. I would clean out the wound twice a day and then coat it in honey. We did get the vet out first though, just to clarify.
I have heard you can as well as icing sugar in an open wound to help stop bleeding and aid healing.
Not personally but I have heard it can really help! But I wonder how you apply it as it sticks!
