Question what should i paint on my horse?

My county 4h show is coming up this summer and I cannot wait! I am wondering if you guys can help me out. I want to paint something on my horse this year but I have not clue what I should paint. I was thinking like a heart or star, but I feel like that is too plain and over used. I was also thinking maybe doing my hand print on her hind quarters? How do you think that would look?

My horse is a roan QH. She kind of looks like this horse (THIS IS NOT MY HORSE) Redirect Notice

I do not have a specific theme that I am going for I just want something cute and unique.

Well....at the summer camp I work at, last summer we painted the horses every Friday and each Friday was a different theme.

Here are a few:

"Twin" Day:

4th of July:

"Safari" Day:

"80's" day:
We ratted out the horse's forelocks and manes as well to give them that big-hair look.

"Cowboys and Indians" Day:
[the horses were the "Indians" and the wranglers were "cowboys/cowgirls"]

"Unicorn/Magic" Day:

Hopefully that gives you some ideas! :)

Thanks! :)

We use tempra paint. Most poster paints are tempra but you'll want to check before you grab any poster paint. It curries out really easily on the body but legs need to be washed off.

I think painting Four leaf clovers on the hindquarters is cool!

Do a very vivid and almost 3D flowers, so the look realistic with shadows and highlights and stuff. Have them start out as vines swirling up around the legs then blooming on her shoulders and hips:)
Wallaby and Live2Ride15 like this.
