Temporary hair dye for horses? XD
I would like to dress up Loki (specifically, dye his mane n' tail purple to match mine!) and was wondering what some good, horse-safe temporary dyes would be. Would Kool-Aid work? Or should I go with spray in stuff?

i did my boys mane purple & blue, but then it rained the next day

Well I don't know how it would work on horses, I have used the dog kind on my Chinese Crested. Here's what I used. PetEdge: Top Performance Hair Dye Gels

Iv used the color jel and its really thick and hard to dry.I would try the spray on stuff.Koolaid would probably end up being sticky.

Crazy Color, Manic Panic etc;
Any vegan dyes are brilliant.
That's after I dyed Squeaks mane and tail in Sky Blue.
It came out within a few days because I washed it out.

I thought about that...Drying Shock's mane black so she would look like a bay LOL Her mane is red/brown and just really crappy looking.

But their mane would grow and the roots would have to be touched up regularly.

yeah if you want it temporary then use hum an temorary hair dye

I prefer to use Pet specific Dyes on animals (dog\cat groomer for 15 years), but a spray in human hair dye would work too, but I would make sure to get it all out as human products often have more harsh chemicals in them that can damage mane and tails.
