Lightbulb Spots

I was grooming my horse after riding today. I found a few spots where hair was missing. The spots where on the horse's shoulder. I softly bushing them and looked at them closer. They won't raw just missing hair. Should I bathe the horse more? I groom them when I feed, before and after riding. So I don't groom to much do I?

If the horse is out with other horses they could be nip marks. Whatever they are, I wouldnt really worry about it unless they don't heal, get worse, or multiple.

There are two other horses out there. Each one in about half in inch, but I saw about three.

They could be fence rubs. No in there are on the lower shoulder no where near the saddle. It's weird, I don't think he fought with the other horse but he could have. There's a mare out there that hates him. I don't know why but they fight to much.. But it's not raw, just hair missing.

Can you possibly post a picture of it?

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
