    I love this, and see this happening in my brown horse's future.

    I see you took every precaution to keep the dye off of his skin and looks like you did a great job!

    I'm sure it will get sun bleached, similar to human hair I would think. I am using products with sun screen to prevent it the best I can. His mane and forelock is so damaged from the sun already that I am going to do a deep conditioning treatment soon.

    Try the olive oil replenishing pak. It's in the black hair care section in a yellow pack. It does miracles in human hair, so I can imagine it would be great on your boys hair. It should be labeled ORS replenishing pak

    - first it looks great!
    - second as a cosmetologist as well I would just like to say it most likely wont hurt your horse if you don't get a reaction 24hrs after. You can always do a patch test somewhere like the belly to test for sensitivity and wait 24hrs and check for hives, swelling or redness.
    -third the only foreseeable problem other than it being illegal in some show circuits is the possibility of it sun bleaching out worse then the original color

    Looks great! :)

    I've dyed my dogs with vegetable dye (and even vinegar and food coloring) and had never considered that you could dye a horse!

    I would've done a patch test but I didn't want to get it even that close to his skin. I used trash bags to ensure that it didn't touch his body and I started about an 1/2"- 1" from the scalp. In the areas where the dye got a little closer to his scalp (his forelock and tail), I used vaseline.

    I will update everyone on how long the color lasts and if the sun bleaching becomes worse than before.

    Xlionesss- Thanks! I will definitely give that a try.

    You did a fantastic job protecting your horse! Looks amazing I am considering it for my paint :) the reason I was saying it may bleach out worse is because box dyes have higher developer so it will remove the natural pigment in the hair to deposit darker color. So it lifts the black hair to deposit black brown.
    Again fantastic job it looks great
