Frost bite.

Duke rubbed off some of his mane a while back and now that it is cold i'm scared he will get frost bite. He has tiny hairs growing already. Is it possible for him to get frost bite?

Subbing for an answer. As far as I know, frostbite generally only affects the extremities [fingers, ears, nose, tail, etc] so I feel like it wouldn't be an issue for the neck.

How cold is cold?

We have about -5 to -10 Celcius at night.

No, there should be no problem. Unless he rubs against metal and the skin gets irritated, it will be fine.
Frostbite affects ears, toes, fingers, noses, etc on humans, we see it on ears on newborn calves and foals, but have never seen it on a neck like you are worried about.
