This made me bust out laughing! It reminds me of the time my bratty mare pooped ON the farrier.

Necrotic bone is the worst smell *ever*.

I remember taking the wrap off an injury and having that smell smack me and spin me around.

Well kept, clean barn with equal parts leather, hay, clean bedding and manure is the best smell.

I'm a strange one. I LOVE the smell of when a horse is being shod and the hot shoe is put on the horse's hoof.. THAT smell ;D

I detest the smell of infection. Bluergh. Gross. Or mice pee xD

Thankfully something I've never dealt with. I can only imagine how bad that would be and hope I don't ever have to find out.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

I, personally, don't have not an issue with the smell of smegma..All the geldings I've ever cleaned have smelled like strong peach... XD

Favourite: Just the barn. A decently (not even greatly) kept barn smells awesome. The general horse smell is nice too..especially while grooming, unless you hit a patch where they rolled in a straight pile of crap..but otherwise, good. :p
Most disliked: Horse urine. It is the MOST absolutely DISGUSTING, repugnant scent I have -ever- smelt. Ever. It smells like a sh!t ton of ammonia, and it's horrid. I hated cleaning the run-in or the stall when Tunie was in it, because I guess being 17h, she peed a ton more than the rest of the horses. I swear she peed (pees, actually lol) enough for 5 horses.. ;-; Horrid, I tell you!!!

I love the smell of horse necks... they could bottle it and i would buy it! And leather ( Yankee Candle makes a leather scent one.. I own 4 of them right now...)
Least favorite... the smell of the hooves when the farrier is trimming them.. ugh. ( although the barn dogs love the trimmings... dog candy!)

Favorite horse smell- pretty much All smells except-
Unkept stalls- I feel bad for horses who are forced to spend time in one.

Chocolate is the answer. Who cares what the question is.

favorite: Horses in general, leather, and I love the smell of a wet horse

least favorite: I cannot stand DMSO smell. I think of a dying horse because that has been the smell after the vet gave a DMSO drip.
