Dying a horse? =P

Has anybody used whitening shampoo to dye their horse blue (since it will turn them blue if you leave it on for too long)? I'd really like to try doing that to Lacey becuase she loves getting baths and I think it'd be really cute if I just left some white stars or something on her rear... But would it be bad for her? I wouldn't be doing it until she's shed out completely or May, which ever comes first. I was also thinking of getting some of that sparkly hoof polish and basically playing princesses and unicorns. Haha, she puts up with so much.

I've seen horses pink because of the shampoo too lol.

As for the sparkly hoof polish, are you talking about twinkle toes? I've heard you have to be careful with that, apparently it blocks the hoof from breathing properly or something. I'm sure once in awhile it doesn't really matter but, I just thought I should put that out there

Ooooh! Pink might be even better! Do you know what brands of shampoo turn them pink...by any chance? Yeah, I was thinking Twinkle Toes. I'd probably only use it on her once or maybe twice, if I get pulled into riding her in a parade this summer.

I'm not sure.. but we paint our horses during the summer and then ride them bareback. Quite fun.

My cousin is in school for Cosmetology and everytime she sees my horse she begs to dye him pink with a purple mane. So he can be "My Little Pony".

Sick way of imagining Blu. Hahaha.

If you don't want it to be to permanent then they make paint for horses...you can get it at a tack store or someplace similar I don't know how well it works or any side effects if there are any...if you do do anything post pictures!!!

I know twinkle toes also has this sparkly gel that they sell, and you can buy stencils and do little designs (if you don't want to do the whole body).
They also have a sparkly spray that you can use in their mane and tail

I would look more for the items like ilovelucy said. Look for paints or hair dyes that are animal safe. I would advise against leaving the shampoo on them to dye the hair. That has the potential to cause some really bad skin problems and may be harmful to the horse. If you find something that works, I would love to see some pictures.

The rio vista shampoos, or atleast "ravishing red", will turn them pink if it's left on too long.
