Hair coming off at hip???

Hi all,
I have only had Hondo for a bit over a month so I feel bad that this is happening but. . . .
This morning I went out to pick hooves and brush him and I noticed a patch of hair that is falling out between his last rib and his rump. It has a patch of hair about a quarter in size that has fallen out and the hair around it is coming out and is graying (dead looking) at the root. The patch of skin looks very dry and I know that his paddock is very dry. What could this be??
I will try to post some pictures this evening after work.
