Foal's hair falling out

I have a 10 week old foal and the hair on the inside of his back legs is falling out. Also the hair on his face is starting to fall out. He is shedding all over, but the hair on his legs and face has all fallen out. I don't know what is causing it or how to treat it. He was wormed about 2 weeks ago. Any suggestions or advice??

Is he shedding his foal fuzzies to a slick coat, or is the skin visible?

Really quite impossible to tell without seeing it - it may be a fungal infection; your vet would be able to advise you as to a good treatment plan if it is something to be worried about. You can always call your vet and describe what's happening, and they might have some suggestions without even having to make a farm call.
