A bit late for regrets now, hopefully it will be nice surprise rather than horrible shock. It's just so cochineal when was aiming for subtle pastel pink.

What - you dyed a real, live horse pink with food colouring? In the name of the wee man, why??

Please, please explain. I really, really am all ears? All yours. Off you go! You may begin...............

As a surprise, she is having birthday party this evening and decorating some of the others. Thought would be nice head start so she could help her friends?

Someone's going to phone the ILPH aren't they!

But... a REAL pony? Pics plz.

ShinyAndNew Fri 14-May-10 15:29:55

You mean 'My Little Pony' no? I thought they were all pink and ghastly glittery anyway?

pedrothellama Fri 14-May-10 15:30:11

Couldn't you have just had a few balloons and a cake? Maybe push the boat out with a clown?

But to dye the pony pink?
Erm do you have a photo of this unfortunate novel animal?

Can I upload to profile from iPhone? Will try . . .

MaisietheMorningsideCat Fri 14-May-10 15:31:14

That still makes no sense at all - she's having a birthday party and decorating some of the other ponies, so you've dyed this one pink with food colouring?

What's wrong with bowling and pizza? grin

WTF...... you dyed a real live pony?????

PINK????

Oh I hope it's not permanent.........

Will await photo.

Is he glittery yet too ? Bet you he rolls in some mud before the party !

pedrothellama Fri 14-May-10 15:33:58

Wow - can't wait to see what happens on the kids 21st birthday! That is one party I really want to go to. I am getting right in with Mitchyinge's gang!

Will you also colour it's poo? Because that horse shit colour will not go with pink at all.

BattyKoda Fri 14-May-10 15:34:31

Errrr...

MitchyInge Fri 14-May-10 15:35:03

Bother, I can't. Is on my FB though, will have to add later.

Sooooo AIBU or NOT?

Cogitoergosum Fri 14-May-10 15:35:13

'spose it makes a change from paint a pot parties.

BattyKoda Fri 14-May-10 15:35:43

How the fuck do you dye a pony???

pedrothellama Fri 14-May-10 15:35:55

Am I being stupid to wonder what colour is was before or is that now irrelevant?

confused

Oh Mitchy - just looked at your pics and your spaniel is almost as handsome as mine. You haven't really dyed a real life pony pink?

Downdog Fri 14-May-10 15:37:15

YANBU, you are being Fantastic - wish you were my Mum! Yes photo please

(cochineal is harmless and will wash out with water)
