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.
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.
