Hair missing on chest

My filly has a patch on her chest where the hair is missing. There is no broken skin and no bumps or anything. Not sure if it's a fungus or she rubbed it off?
It doesn't seem to be spreading but just wondering if anyone has any ideas?

I am on the mobile version and have no idea how to post pictures.

I would say she doesn't wear a rug looking at her coat!
Looks to ne as if she has been leaning over something and just rubbed it out.

She doesn't wear a rug. She's a weanling so terribly difficult to blanket lol but yes she has a thick winter coat.
Thanks Foxhunter, I hops that's all it is!

Is she eating from a feeder? My filly did the same from eating through a round bale feeder. Looks like the same spot too:)

If she gets itchy as our weather warms that's a favorite area for rubbing against something.

Looks like she found something abrasive to scratch her itchy spot on!

Thanks everyone!
She doesn't eat from a feeder but there is a feeder in the pasture (frozen to the ground otherwise I'd take it out) and yes it's been warm lately :)
