    Do they use it on themselves as well?

    Yes! Most memorable one is a deep chest wound that was stapled shut and slathered in T fluid. I'm not sure if it helps or if the wound heals despite the fluid lol

    I dunno. Heard it from an old retired farrier years ago. I never used him.

    A deep chest wound on a human? Did they staple it shut themselves? If not I wonder what the doctor said to their idea of wound care.... yikes.

    Never was keen on these backwoods remedies or listening to anyone pushing them, made no logical sense to me.

    The only one I've actually seen work is beer for a colic. Once the horse drank it, it cleared whatever his issue was in about 20 minutes. It was a giant dump.

    honey for wounds works very well, but I think that has had enough research to be a legitimate treatment now and not considered a back woods remedy anymore
