Again fantastic job it looks great
Thank You. Maybe you should wait a little while to see the outcome on my boy before you do your paint, haha. If his hair ends up looking worse than it did before then maybe it wouldn't be such a great idea. Hopefully it stays pretty with the sunscreen and conditioners.

Looks like he enjoyed his day at the salon. His tail needs a perm though, lol!

He absolutely loved all of the attention. He even learned what a garbage bag is and took to it like a champ. I could only think of one way to make the bags stay on his tail; it is an interesting contraption and took some creativity. Here are a couple of pictures.

I had never heard of that before. How would they ever know a mane was dyed?

I think your horse looks great! Never heard of anyone doing this before! Pretty awesome!

It looks very nice. Did you make sure that you used a horse safe product? Some chemicals can hurt horses. Also, do you think you will up keep it? Other wise when the mane grows out it will be half the original color and half jet black

Too bad we can't figure out how to color our horses to make them Palomino!! I've always wanted a golden Palomino.

I used regular human hair dye. I was very cautious with not allowing the dye to come in contact with his skin. So far it is still holding up and looking great. His hair is originally black and I figured that all of the hair should get sun bleached at about the same rate as his undyed portions. I will find out fairly soon if the new hair growth will be noticeably different.
Hopefully it stays pretty!
