Horse of a different color!
Mine and Candys next show is Aug. 8th, and the theme of this show is 'Horse of a different color!'. SO, I have 6 very bright neon tubes of paint, but I have no idea what to do, as far as Ideas of how to decorate her. I know the show is like a month away, but i want to get ideas now because I know I will change my mind a thousand times.:lol:She also has white hoofs, so I was thinking about painting them somehow?

Here are some pictures of Candy.. Suggest what you would do with the paint!

I was thinking, maybe taking the paints, and outlining all her markings with a different color, Or making large 'spots' on her butt with the paint, and just making weird paint spatters or something on all the white on her.

But I really dont know!!! What would you do?!!?:D Even if you could think of things to do without the paint!

twinkle toes hoof paint

We decorated the horses for a birthday party and used 'twinkle toes' hoof polish. You can get it at tack stores or online at use black hoof polish and then put the twinkle toes on. Jack's hooves were so shiny and sparkly...they looked better in the sun, but let me see if i can attach a picture.

We also used stensils to paint on them....Jack had stars on his butt.

Good luck!:-)

My daughter had put hand prints on her horse before just for fun, but it was cute

Sherie: Cute:)

Awhh! I didnt even think about hand prints. She has a white butt too! I could do that!

Since part of her mane is white you could get aluminum foil to separate the pieces and do each section a different color...kinda liike how they do highlights for people hair.

Like a rainbow in her mane?! That would look awesome with the hand prints on her behind!

I am still not sure what to do about her hoofs though. I am not going to buy twinkle toes because this is the only time i would be using it. haha

You could just do clear hoof polish and glitter on her hooves. That's what we did for fourth of july and it worked ok. Lacey managed to somehow get all of the glitter off on only one of her hooves so three were purty and one was normal but she was the only one to fail at keeping pretty toes out of the 4 horses we had in the parade. haha
