I think adrenal smells like adrenal in both boys and girls. Trying to
think if I've smelled a sprite with adrenal besides Penny. I've got
to run out to the shelter to look at some graphics for the club...
I'll compare her to the boys. From my mind it's the same smell, the
same dirty, more oily, coated texture to the hair.. though perhaps a
little less coarse.. but that would be subjective. Anyone have a gib
and a sprite awaiting surgery to compare? I have no experience with
hobs and jills so I can't even have an opinon there.

Patty, great thread by the way, thanks for starting it!
