Using Chalk for a parade

I have a black pony I will be walking in a parade in about a month. Since stencils don't show up very good, I was thinking about using red and white chalk to draw my Canada Flag. Will this harm him in any way ? (do harm to his coat) And what do you think about drawing patterns, with other things?

Generally one uses hairspray then combs the pattern in by going against the hair. Chalk is soapstone ie compressed baby (talcum) powder so it won't hurt him. Just hope it doesn't rain or he'll have white dribbles..

I know how to do patterns, but it doesn't show up well on him, I don;t know why. Thanks for the info, and it shouldn't rain, its on the first of July
