Pony Rubbing Hair Out

One of my ponies is rubbing his neck, shoulder and chest to the point of where it looks shaved. He has been doing it on and off all winter, and has a very thick coat. I haven't caught him in the act, there were a few scabs and a bit of dandruff in a few spots. I put some fungicide on it, to make sure it wasn't ring worm or anything like that, but it hasn't stopped him rubbing. Any ideas what it could be. Bathing is out of the question because it's very cold here right now.

It could also possibly be lice. (gross, I know, but...) One of mine was rubbing to the point that he had huge bald spots on both sides and all down his chest and neck. I never saw anything on him, but had the vet out and he found lice on him. They weren't too hard to get rid of, but how to treat them depends on what kind, so it would be something to talk over with your vet. Hopefully it is an easy fix and he is fluffy again in no time. :)
