Temporary hair dye for horses? XD

I would like to dress up Loki (specifically, dye his mane n' tail purple to match mine!) and was wondering what some good, horse-safe temporary dyes would be. Would Kool-Aid work? Or should I go with spray in stuff?

Wait! I'll fix it....

Well I don't know how it would work on horses, I have used the dog kind on my Chinese Crested. Here's what I used. PetEdge: Top Performance Hair Dye Gels

Crazy Color, Manic Panic etc;
Any vegan dyes are brilliant.
That's after I dyed Squeaks mane and tail in Sky Blue.
It came out within a few days because I washed it out.

I thought about that...Drying Shock's mane black so she would look like a bay LOL Her mane is red/brown and just really crappy looking.

But their mane would grow and the roots would have to be touched up regularly.

I prefer to use Pet specific Dyes on animals (dog\cat groomer for 15 years), but a spray in human hair dye would work too, but I would make sure to get it all out as human products often have more harsh chemicals in them that can damage mane and tails.
