    Weird because my horse got weird spots like that, just not as big. Over the winter, he got really fuzzy and I would curry him like crazy to get the hair off since we were showing. He only got spots like that on the top of his butt. If he ever gets fungus, that's where it is (only in the summer when he's sweating like a pig and it dries on his skin). Well, we body clipped him and it went away. I always make sure I hose him off super good in that area to make sure he never gets fungus up there again.

    I had a horse shed like that one season. She was nearly bald, but it was just an odd way to shed her winter coat. Her hair came out in big clumps and then it grew back in real short and sleek. If it isn't itchy it probably isn't lice. I think Chanti even shed odd when she was younger.

    Strangely enough, she is just shedding out. That's what the vet said, and Deanna told me that her hair is coming in nicely. It just really freaked us out, because neither one of us have ever seen a horse shed out like that. So glad it wasnt something worse.

    I figured that's what it was. There's really no exact reason why they do it, it's just something that happens once in a while. That one time my mare shed like that was the only time, same with Chanti.
    I'm glad you are reassured though.

    My mare Cactus is shedding out like this as well.
