I always thought I was weird for enjoying certain horsey smells! Glad it's not just me! Non-horse people just don't understand. :3

Favourites:
- Nice horsey smell of their necks
- Leather
- Certain kinds of fly spray (weird, right?)
- Clean, well-kept barn smell (fresh shavings and horse shampoo mmmm!)

Worst:
- Thrush foot (yuck!)
- Really gross stalls (like when the messy percheron pees a crater through the shavings and tramples EVERYTHING into a nasty muck... and I get to clean it >B[ )

Least favorite... the smell of the hooves when the farrier is trimming them.. ugh. ( although the barn dogs love the trimmings... dog candy!)
Does it really smell like leather? :O I know Yankee makes the best but if so that's awesome!

My favourites the smell of their face when you kiss it, Sunny's chicken smelling nose and fresh haylage. Least favourites are pee and foot trimming time.

My favorite: Horse, leather, show sheen, a nicely kept barn, clean stalls, saddle soap.
My least favorite: Smegma and thrush

Also I agree with cebee if you could bottle the scent of a horses neck I would buy it in a heart beat.

Anything to do with happy healthy horses. Grassy horse breath, horse neck, leather, bran mash, fresh bag of chaff, the sea air while galloping, damp forest on a misty morning, the aroma that sits on your yard jacket.... anything

Most of all I love the smell of a horse barn - hay, straw, shavings, grain, general horsey smells. At my BHS exam I was shaking with nerves until I walked around the corner into the barn and the smell of horse barn hit me. I just... relaxed. Its like home :)

Hate the smell of thrush and unkempt shaving beds.

My best smell is their neck and fresh good sweet grass hay.

The worst smell is smegma even with palpation gloves I can't eat anything with my hands for a week. I use Ivory soap to clean sheeths and I hate the smell of Ivory now.

The best sound is on a quiet winter morning after I have fed, no body else is around and every one is munching contently.
