Thanks guys! I'm looking at painting him to be a giraffe - not sure if that is going to be too hard and time consuming though! It looks like the Crayola paint may be my best option...

It took us about 40 minutes to do my skeleton, if that helps your decision at all. Lol

I suggest getting a big bottle, a pan, and a big sponge brush. Works better than normal brushes or those little bottles. We used one 16oz bottle.

And drift, feel free to steal! Lol!

Thank you!

That does give me a good idea, but I'm still going to try to do it.

I think someone else at the barn is doing rainbow bright on their white horse, but I wanted something scary! (or moderately horror themed lol)

Never had any issue with it on dogs! Not sure if the whole dying thing is what you want to do though. I also use these blowpens on dogs for little touch ups...that would probably be just fine on horses too
Manic Panic dye is actually bad for people too! It ruins the hair, I know because my friend and I have both dyed our hair with it. Plus I wouldn't dye a horse! It seems cruel to me, like that one YouTube video where a girl gets a pink pony as a birthday present. Any water based paints are fine, just make sure you buy some that are a little more thick than watery so you can get the color on right.

What about Temporary Hair chalk for humans? They sell it on ebay.
