Hair balding in patches, any ideas?

So basically she has little patches where the hair has gone thin mainly on her sides and I was just wondering if I should be worrying? :)

Its not a very good picture it just looks like darker patches of hair, but they are actually thinner bits of hair so you can see the black skin more :)

If the skin is smooth and healthy looking, there should be nothing to be concerned about. Horses lose little patches of hair from anything from rubbing to uneven shedding all the time.

Yeah the skin seems fine it just looks like she has inverse dapples lol
