Put milking gloves on underneath 👌🏼

Is it only a farming thing where if something smells bad, footrot, lambs sticky bum, rotten lambs etc you have to smell it to see actually how bad it is? 3 of us here all do it to see how bad that smell actually is yet the casual labour who don’t do any farm work except for lambing don’t smell test things? 🤣

No, it's a bloke thing.
If a woman offers you something to sniff, it is usually a pleasant aroma you will experience.
A bloke offers you something to smell it will always be something unpleasant and disgusting.
The girl here sniff tests everything but has a poor gag reflex so usually ends up being sick 🤣 yesterday it was a tennis ball sized lump of colostrum under a lambs tail which I pretended to eat, it’s just like caramel I told her, split it up for the dogs and it was stuck between all their teeth 😬🤣

always makes me chuckle when I say to the wife “do my hands smell”?

I’ve posted it plenty of times before, but a good barrier cream like Dermashield, applied before ‘diving in’, prevents it permeating into your skin. It just washes off under a tap afterwards.👍

The same product also stops your skin drying out/cracking from the continual wet/dry cycle over lambing too. :)

Washing your hands using toothpaste helps to get rid of the smell (well, masks it)
I got bollocked the other week for using several different types of the Mrs’s fancy shampoo and body wash stuff too try and get rid of the smell. I’d only been in bed 10 minutes when that little grumpy voice piped up “you still stink of sheep.” 😂

This stuff has a nice smell - used these pre pandemic, now their just dirt cheap.

Worst smell ever I think was ditch cleaning and a woolless stinking Sheeps corpse bobbed to the surface like some kind of death stink torpedo.
I was heaving 😷😷
I killed a skunk with the swather one year swathing canola. Forgot to pull the body out of the row and wife picked it up and shoved it thru the combine. Had to dump half a hopper full rather than contaminate the whole bin. Combine stank real rank for days until it got steam cleaned. I cracked a joke telling her not to leave her undies in the cab but the humour was wasted. 😬. Some women are too sensitive.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
