Gross scabby things?!?

So my mare has these spots right under her mane along the hairline but not in her mane. They are yellowish orange scabs. I've asked many people at barn if it was rain rot but nobody has seen something this color before. It seems to be spreading down her neckline but it is only right along the edge of her mane and only on the underside.

I put some mane and tail protect on it. Like tons and rubbed it into the scabs. I can't tell if it was sore or not as she was quite the jumpy agitated girl today in general.

Is this rain rot or something else??? I would get pictures but no clue how to upload from my phone.

Bot eggs? I thought those only showed up on legs, but I don't know of any other gross scabby thing that is orange.

Weanling
My horse had the same thing, but it spread all over his body eventually and was crazy itchy. I washed him in an anti fungal wash and put some stuff (don't remember the name) from the vet on it. I kept him dry and in the sun, it cleared up and the hair grew back within a month.

Hmmm I've never seen bot eggs but the biggest spot is about 1/4" wide by about an inch long the other spots are a little smaller. The protect stuff is for fungal and bacterial stuff so hopefully it will help. I hope to give her a bath tomorrow if it actually gets up to 80. She's also never had a bath that we know of. It was too cold after she was rescued to give a full bath.

I don't think it itches. She's not trying to rub it or anything. Do you think if I keep her mane braided up to allow air to get to it will help? It hasn't been all that rainy here.

Thank you for suggestions.

I was wondering ring worm. I've only seen them on the rump and they were round thick scabs.

Definately not round. And she's wormed every two months on a rotating schedule. It's almost like its trying to connect into one long scab. And scabs come off quite easily.

This sounds like what my horse had. I can't help you on what it is called but I treated mine with bedidene wash and anti fungal creams. I also picked the scabs off. Seemed to help as it did go away. It never spread far and didn't seem to bother him. I wish I could be of more help though.

Well the spray stuff should work then since its for all different fungal things. I just really hope it works.

Ring worm is not actually a worm, so deworming wouldn't matter.
I hope you solve your mystery.

Well I learn something new everyday. And I certainly hope it goes away soon. Thank you.
