Wednesday Video from Kentucky Performance Products: The Buzz About Manuka Honey

We’ll take every opportunity to learn from the best, so we love that Jackie Potts, award-winning Head Groom to William Fox Pitt, is sharing some of her trick of the trade via the Fox Pitt Equestrian YouTube Channel.

This week she talks to us about Manuka honey, which is a honey native to New Zealand and Australia and well-regarded for its antibacterial properties. Jackie finds its use for treating wounds particularly useful for two reasons: First, she’s noted that the hair over the wound tends to grow back pigmented as opposed to white. Second, it can safely be used at the corners of the mouth if you notice a horse is starting to get bit rubs.

Thanks for sharing, Jackie!
