I read its about $850 per eye on average. That's way more than i can afford. I'm going to try regular eyeliner and see how that goes. I'm going out tomorrow and hopefully i can put some on him...Maybe his nose first. THANKS!

eyeliner should work because a friend of mine used it on her horse, but becareful because he might or might not be allergic to it.

Definitely get a high end eyeliner that is hypo allergenic, non codmogenic, etc.. If you're going that route.

Is it not common practice in America for showies to plaster their horses with makeup??

I really hope those that are recommending human eye liner are joking.

Sticking a pencil that close to a horses eye? The bill would be a lot more than $850 if the horse moves wrong.

Sunscreen or a fly mask is a lot safer. Think health - not appearance.

I would definitly go with the eye black and use your fingers to apply it. I think a stick type eyeliner pencil could be dangerous too.
They have this at walmart

How is applying eyeliner and different from clipping the hairs off their eyes? I have never tried eyeliner on a horse, but if you know your horse will stand I don't see a problem with it.

mls, I doubt anyone is reccomending that the eyeliner be used in that way. More like how football players put the black stuff under their eyes.

I used a makeup wedge to apply it on his nose first. Turned out fine so I put it on his eyes. They stopped watering and I personally think it looks better. I'll post pics as soon as I can.

mls - One reason I want to have black around his eyes is for health. Having pink skin makes him a huge candidate for blindness, skin cancer, and other eye damage. Thanks for the input. :)

Miss Katie - I have used hoof polish once. And I will probably never use it again. We couldn't get it out and my old horse's hooves dried out and cracked. Not the best idea in my opinion. Hooves are hooves. As long as they are nice and clean, why polish them. ( I prefer Appy stripes.) :)
