I used this and accidentally turned my gelding pink:

At my stable most of us use 'Glo White'. :)
It's pretty much purple goo that makes all white horsies really clean and well, white. :P
But if you don't rub it in properly/wash it out properly, it tends to leave the horses looking purple. Which is really lame if you have a show to go to, but hilarious if it just a normal day.

My 'ex'-friend used to use that coloured hairspray (know that stuff? They use it at like school carnivals and like shows and stuff) on her white ponies many and tail to make him look like a My Little Pony.
It used to make his hair horrible and dry, if she didn't wash it out it would start falling out.
So do not use that! >-<

Have a good one.

I used quik silver all last year when I was showing a paint. It's dark purple and they warn about leaving it on too long. Something came up once during a bath that I had to resolve and I accidently left it on him for more then 20 min! I was afraid I was going to be showing a purple/black horse but with some scrubbing it all came out and left him glowing white. So I don't think most whitening shampoos will be strong enough to really be too noticable. Although it WILL leave your fingernails and tips a slight blueish color making you look like you have you had a bit of frostbite....

I knew a lady who had a black horse with white scars on his legs and before shows she used to actually dye his legs completley black. She used some kind of non-toxic hair dye, not sure what kind though. But it did last for several weeks before fading. It's an idea.... although I'm not sure how much I recommend it. :)

Would kool-aid work? We used to use it on our hair when we were kids, and it works great! Only lasted until the first wash, but really cheap so worth it.

Now that is a good idea... Does anybody know if kool-aid would be bad? I am for sure going to take pictures when I do it. It'll probably happen sometime early next month...
