Motor wont turn over. Something smells fried!

I went outside today and the motor wouldnt turn over at all. The starter is getting 12 volts. I checked the fuses and fuse # 20(starter motor relay coil, clutch switch 15A) was blown. I replaced the fuse and attemped to turn it over again and it blew again. Does it sound like the starter is bad. When i got in the cab it had a strong smell of like something burnt up. Like something was fried. This was a very strong smell and it really hasnt left. The batteries are good. Had them tested today. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I figured out the problem. It was the starter solenoid on the passenger side fender behind the battery. 15$ fix
