Melanie! So nice to hear from you again.

I don't know the answer to your question.

How is your mare? Is she getting fatter, with a bigger bag?

I have only used permanent for hore sales, do not know about the stuff that washes off. I would think if you found a human temporary it would work on horses, just have to use a lot of it.

All horses are growing into their winter coat now because of the sun...shorter days. I've noticed mine getting softer and fluffier. There is shedding of the summer coat.

Melanie-I have thought your horse was pregnant since the movie you posted of her flank movements.

I would not use a bunch of dye on her...use your gelding. Or buy a black sleezy cover for her. It is a long address, but see the whole body one?

I color sun bleached tails and such, just to enhance their look. One foal I used a dynasplint on got white hairs on his knee due to that so I also dyed his legs to cover the spots. Since those spots would usually indicate surgery and he did not have surgery.

Good idea on the black sleezy. Country Supply on Horse.com has inexpensive ones ($45).

Sure you can cover scars just as long as you are not masking something that is a no no like surgery. A dyna splint is just an aid, nothing wrong with that.

You have to go to Walmart and look at the different colors and see which one is closest to hers.

Just don't get it in her eyes, that would hurt! Treat her like you would treat a human you were coloring.

is this a good idea to be dying a horses hair with such strong chemicals? If it can burn a persons scalp surely it could have a bad effect on a horses skin too?

The majority of hair dyes out there now are actually pretty mild. I remember the days of the strong amnonia burning my eyes and scalp but they're not like that anymore. I'm sure there are some still out there but you can get gel based or "all natural" so it doesn't burn. I personally have never dyed my horses but I know it's done all the time.
