Mane hair loss

My welsh sec D cob has a very thick full mane that is over a foot long.
When I brushed him on monday I noticed that about a 3 inch section of his mane about half the way down started to come away. Over the past couple of days it has come away even more and that area of mane is almost completly bald. It is not affecting any other part of his mane, coat or tail, just this 3 inch section. I have ruled out mites and a fungal infection. But am now at a complete loss as to what it can be. Help!

Its probably just bacteria. Use Apple cider vinegar on it

He might be rubbing his mane... I had to roach renas mane a while ago because she was rubbing off a section of it.

Out of curiosity, how did you rule out fungal infection and mites?

My uncle is a horse expert, was almost a vet but decided at the last min to pull out and travel the world in a horse drawn caravan...nice for some. He had a quick look for me but couldnt diagnose anything. Was just wondering if I could scource any information from you guys x
