Distasteful or not, I am writing about it.
It would be the smell in the air. The smell that stamps in place the bucks are in rut.
What does the smell also mean? Sticky bucks, yellow coats, and does that have come in contact that do not smell so pretty either.
When the girls come to the milkstand I no longer give them a big hug as they leave. Well, some of them still get one. They do not know they are offensive, and probably would not understand my desire to not smell like a buck.
Love is in the air. The bucks make sure they smell oh-so-odorous for the girls. I have never understand why urinating on your own beard, belly, and legs, time and time again, is so attractive. But I guess there are mysteries in the animal world that we will never quite understand.
So, I lead my “girls” with 2 fingers under the collar as needed. I keep my distance.
And I use a lot of goat milk soap to erase the inevitable brush of eu-de-parfume-de-buck from my own skin.
Aren’t you glad men don’t have to go to such great lengths to attract their mates?
