Thought my show buddy would chip in here :P

Oh and nice even quartermarks! A few designs to choose from but DO NOT do stars or love hearts! Nothing screams "cute and unsophisticated" when you want to look "neat and sophisticated" There is an art to these :) Small checks on small rump, same story on a big one :)And sharksteeth look smart as well :)
In saying that, 2 or 3 strips on top of the rump look good as well. Experiment!
I tried to find a few designs but mynet is playing up:)

Thanks guys. Magnum is an appaloosa so I'd have to use clear hoof enamel. Also his markings include a spotted blanket so can't do the quarter marks. What is a skinny hood? He has a fairly good length of neck so I'll experiment with the plaits to see what looks best.
Also when doing face make up/baby oil, have seen a couple of different ways to do it. Do I go down the bones of his face or blend 'glasses', so to speak, into his face and do the edges of his muzzle.

It all depends in the shape of his face and what you are using :) Fair enough with the quarter marks hah :)

Well, I have baby oil, but was considering buying make up, I have some pics of him on here, don't know if there's any good ones of his face though.

Baby oil isn't as easy to mess up as makeup is. I just do baby oil straight around the eyes and muzzle, down no bone lines or anything. It really is just personal prefernce :)

a skinny hood is a stretchy piece of material (don't know for sure the correct name but it think its lycra?) that goes over their head and neck ,with holes for the eyes and ears and nose. Like a hood but stretchy! :)

Deinately do his muzzle:) as for the eyes, I'm not sure how they do it for appys. Google apply nationals or something and you can get a good look at the way they present them. I know for arabians they highlight the cheek bones etc as they have a very fine head. Depends on your horses head I guess.
Best thing to do.......experiment! :)

agreed! It is much easier to apply then makeup. You don't want your horse to look like he's been hit in the eye nor get that faded and washed kind of look.

It just depends on the horse. Clear seems to suit tess better than black makeup, where as colonel (my horse) suits black better.

Wow thanks. I take it you two know each other?! :) He is black, I think I'd prefer to use clear rather than black, don't want to over do him. Ok, that would probably be a good thing to purchase... I'll experiment and if I post some pics could you tell me what you think please?
