They do make actual horse hair dyes, I can't think of the name at this point in time, but they make them for your entire horse, a lot of show horses get dyed, and the miniatures have to be dyed, any sun-bleaching or incorrect colouring is a huge no-no. So there is horse hair dye, but I can't think of the one my friends use on their miniatures...

But this is the Henna one

I for sure would NOT use human dye on a horse, especially on the sensitive area that you are referring to. From the sounds of this, this is a man made conformation issue and you should not be judged against it......

Go to the Wilton isle in Walmart, it's next to the craft isle, and buy the professional food dye. It works great! I used it for a parade and it works awesome! It's about $3 for a small container of it but a little goes a long way ��

If you intend to go to a horse show that is USEF rated, dyeing your horse is illegal. USEF rule 802.1

GR802 Artificial Markings and Appliances
1. Any change of color or markings other than mane, tail or hoof is prohibited. (Exception: Arabian and Half/Anglo Arabian halter, see AR107.5; Reining Division; Friesian Division; Paso Fino, see PF101.5-.6). Only clear grooming materials are allowed on the hide and hair. Materials may be used to remove stains.

They make a dye that can be used to color eyelashes, its that gentle and it's suppose to last 20-30 days. I've thought about using it myself I'm sure you could find some, just google eyelash tint. I wonder if mascara would work, hmmm would that be just wrong?!

Here's one- Godefroy 28 Day Mascara Permanent Eyelash Tint Kit, Black | drugstore.com=

Yes, you can use human hair dye (it is used on eyebrows and even eye lashes...carefully). That said it has to match (try it wayyy ahead of time) and with some breeds it is illegal (so check). For a few hairs, use a little brush...leave on half the time. Wash off. (Have dyed away uneven socks/etc).
