Let me know what you think of the Gallop.
I am going to try a can of The Sullivan's Touch Up in Black,it's only $7 and I can just wash it out. Stalling and fly sheets are not an option for me.

If that does not work I am going the hair dye route...watch out I will be posted pics of Stilts in foils...lol

Why don't you just go natural?

Will do LOL, it might just be 3 months from now, if it ever warms up! :) I sympathize because stalling and sheets aren't an option for me either hahah! It can make show grooming difficult sometimes!

I used permanent black hair dye on my mare's mane and tail. I put the dye in her tail, braided it, and folded it into a tail bag so she wouldn't swish it all over her bay coat.
For her mane, I used foil like at a salon. I cut the strips before I went to the barn, then took sections and did her mane and forelock. It took some time and patience, but she looks beautiful!

Right on...I may get brave and try it. I ended up trying Shapley's Touch Up in Black and spray painted him. It drys flat so I used Pepi over the top...it worked alright...

I feed paprika year round. Two tablespoons daily, one every feeding.
Note, this really only works on the coat. The hairs do still bleach, but what happens is, as the bleached hair is regularly shedding out, new dark hairs are coming in at the same rate, so it balances out.

The mane and tail, it would do the same thing, but...That takes forever. Tails don't shed like coats, and they stay long, so even the new dark hairs growing in, just fade again.

I used to dye my horses tail, but it didn't last quite like I wanted, and I really prefer to keep the chemicals out of his tail.

I use the Shapleys. You go through a lot of it, especially with a bay, since I also have to spray his other black points, but it's easier and healthier, since I can just wash it out, and stay natural all other times.
Like you did, I just spray Pepi right over. It lasts all day at shows, and the best method I've liked so far.

Cool! Thanks Dejavu! I think maybe I will just stick with that.


LOL! Kevin, you should know by now that women are "fixers" whether it be horses or men!
