Sounds like a serious drain. First, fully recharge the battery, a new one should survive. By the way, disconnect the negative terminal until you get this all resolved...
So, charged battery, fluid up. connect the battery and measure the voltage at it's terminals. Start the bike and measure voltage again. Running, at 1500 to 2400 rpm, and lights off, you need 13.8 to 14.2 volts. I bet that you may not see much of an increase.
Turn off engine, everything off, Disconnect the negative battery terminal, and put a test light in series. Does it light, if so, start probing where something is grounded. On Bikes, that is often the diodes in the charging system. That is one of the first things to disconnect and check test light at the battery... (to be clear: in series means that the test light connects to the removed negative wire, and the test light's grounding end goes to the battery. It completes the circuit.)
Keep moving and disconnecting until you have no light at the battery test light...
Another way of measurement is to remove negative battery cable and connect the leads of a voltmeter to batt terminal and negative wire.
This is the process to get what is happening. When a charging system diode fails, (diode is a one way "valve" for electricity, allowing current to move in one direction, but not the other) the power runs right to ground through a failed diode or two. They just fail eventually.

Yes the horn should sound when connected directly to a power 6volt dc power supply like a battery, the power supply to the horn on a dt250 is the same supply as the brake light and indicator relay, the supply is constant when the ignition is on, the horn button then completes the circuit by earthing the horn out when pressed, simple test on the bike connect live wire to horn, using a length of wire earth out the other pole on the horn to a clean part of the frame, and the horn should sound
