Dying a horse blue???

I am planing on entering a costume class next week. We are going as lilo & stich. Me as lilo my almost completely white appy as stich.

I want it to be safe but wouldn't mind if it lasted a few weeks. I mean who doesn't want a blue horse. I have no classes after this class and it is my last show of the year so the color can last awhile. Any ideas?

There are pet safe dyes that are semi permanent. I'm sure you could do it, it might be a bit on the expensive side though. If you do you need to post pictures!!!

The poodle in that ad made me snort! Who would do that to their dog?!

Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.

I have seen a poodle whose owner always has him died some color.

I agree, we need photos of the horse if you die it blue, please.

How to Dye Hair with Kool Aid | eHow.com
Coloring hair with Kool aid - Step by Step Kool aid hair dye recipe

The only problem with these methods is it requires wrapping the area in plastic wrap overnight. Might be problematic with a horse...then again, Koolaid is cheap.

Other than that, try manic panic.

Drafty- they had a show about it once, apparently there is some grooming competition on who can make their dog look the most outrageous. My favorite was the lion. Lol.

We used to use a weak solution of laundry bluing to make a white tail appear whiter.

This is what I was thinking.
Take a few big bottles of poster paint (prob less than $5 each at wall mart).
Empty them into a bucket. Fill the bucket up about halfway with water, and mix it up. Now you have a big bucket of 'blue' water. Take a sponge, start at the top of your horse, and go to town.
