Has your horse ever farted? What do they smell like - are they worse than human farts?

    Yes, horses fart with some frequency. Like human farts, their intensity varies.

    They definitely do not smell anything like human (or dog) farts. Horses excel in noisy farts and long farts. Some are also beautifully melodic. Frankly, any who likes Elton John would love the sound of horses farting.

    Horse poop isn't too bad when it comes to smell. It's basically digested grass - so it's akin to slightly slimey potting compost. Horse owners will often use their bare hands to remove stray bits of dung from their horse's stable bedding. I've done this lots. Obviously you wash your hands after. I'd never contemplate handling dog poop - sometimes it's bad enough picking it up with my hand inside a poop bag.

    Since the diet of a horse is quite different to humans, I doubt it would smell as 'bad'.
