Take the information that is helpful, which has been offered from knowledgeable people, and disregard the rest. You'll find many here are very motivated to offer sincere assistance.
The health and welfare of your mare is the priority here, and there's been quite a few great points made. Making a list for the Vet is a great idea, as we always forget to ask "the doctor" when he'she is present, whether it's a human or equine patient. Good luck with your girl and keep us informed. :)
Thank you :) I'll keep everyone informed.. But now another thing is wrong with her. When it started to warm up my mare started getting dry skin on her jawline and face. I put mtg on her and it has helped so much! But now on her face it's like.. Not nice skin. It literally looks like moisturizer flakes of dry skin. I can scrape it right off and it'll take more fur off. She's having the same problem on her back. The problem on her back is I used a bad saddle pad on her back and it rubbed her raw. But it's doing the same thing her face is doing. I try to look at it but it's so sensitive to her.. She'll flick her tail and threaten to bite. She'll let me give her a bath and wash it but nothing else. It was starting to get better and was almost completely healed but now, it seems like the mtg is regrowing hair but making her skin.. Gross. I haven't been able to ride her in 2 weeks but I do lunge her for excersize. I wanted to get a good pick but there's mtg on it so there's no way you'd be able to see what I'm talking about. Her back is hurting but her face isn't.

Could be a number of things like allergies, fugi etc. Since she's been like this for two weeks, I imagine the vet has seen her. What did he/she say?

I have a little horse now that I got in January. She was infested with strongyles, and as her winter coat started to shed, she too lost patches of hair and it seemed to make her sore where the hair was falling out. Idk if its from the worm infestation or the chemicals in the wormer, but definitely one or both. I didn't put anything on it, I left it alone and now she is completely shed out and the spots have grown new hair, and no scars... I'm not saying NOT to put medicine on it, and I would ask the vet when he comes to check her, but hopefully it's something similar to my girl, and it will straighten itself out.

I meant 'fungi' in that post. Could be rain rot, but living as she does, in the San Diego area, I doubt that is the cause. Could be lice.

By the sound of it though, until a cause is known, no saddle pads, tack or grooming equipment should be shared with another horse. Also the mare herself should be quarantined for the safety of other horses near her.

The vets coming out in a few days. It is growing back but it hurts her.. It usually just hurts if I put the MTG on. If I brush it it's usually fine. I'm gonna lay off the MTG and see if that helps.

I'm getting a fungal shampoo to bathe her in and see if that helps.

The saddle pad took the fur off and left some sores. Anything I can do to treat those?

You are using a saddle which obviously doesn't fit. I doubt it was the saddle pad.

Generally speaking a saddle pad is not going to leave sores. However, a poor fitting saddle certainly can.
