I have a question that probably was never asked before, because it's rather frivilous.

Asia has to go to the Holsteiner approvals in a couple of weeks and wouldn't you know it, she is getting rather scruffy. She scraped her head near her eye about a month ago and took the hair off. It's finally starting to grow back but it's off color and it takes away from her appearance. I was wondering, I have some temporary dye that people use on their hair, can I use this on her for that small spot. It's the size of a quarter, so I wouldn't be doing a big section. I just want to color it to make her look more appealing to the judges. It probably won't make any difference, but I'm anal retentive and it would make me feel better if it's not so noticable.

Thank you in advance for your help.
Marilyn

Thank you very much

Marilyn, hair color would be the last thing I'd use....if it goes wrong, it'll discolor the hair around the spot too, and you'll have an even worse mess. If it were me, I'd try to find some of that spray on hair stuff made for men. Something that (if you mess up) you can just wash off, and try again.

That's a fantastic idea Diana! The chemicals in this product wouldn't hurt the foal would it?

Marilyn,
Go to your local feed/tack store and ask for the spray on product they use on the coat of show cattle. It comes in all coat colors and works beautifully. I've used it before on horses for touch ups and to hide gray hairs from a scar.

It comes in a spray can just like spray paint. I'm at work but will call home when I get a second and ask my husband to go look at the can and tell me what the name of it is, I want to say Champion but I'm not sure.

Marylin,
My husband said It's Sullivan's brand touch up. But I know they have it under a variety of brand names for show cattle and I'm sure they're all about the same.
The more coats you spray on the deeper the color gets so you would want to experiment a bit before the inspection so that you know how much you want to use.

Thank you Phyllis! I definately will do that. It takes away from her overall look when you see all these scrapes and wierd haircolor. Thank you for you help. :-)

Marilyn use caution when coloring on the face. We just came back from a breed show and had a mare that banged her face up and the hair was starting to come in. She is a 2yr old and her hair was coming in darker. We used the men’s hair dye and it looked great at first. Then when we got to the show it had faded a little so we put a little more on. Wouldn’t you know it under lights it really showed up. The judges also frowned on it. They told us that we should just leave it. They are babies and anything can happen. They thought we were trying to hide something big. I know you are going to an inspection and not a show but you may want to cheek the rules.

Very good point Tahra, I never even thought of that aspect. I don't think I'd better bother with it. They know that foals will be foals and they probably see this kind of thing all the time.

It was kinda close to the eye too, which concerned me getting the product in her eye. I guess I'll leave things as they are. Thanks to all for your imput, it's good to know these things.
