I have a gorgeous sorrel gelding (you can see him in my profile pic) that's been having some skin issues. He's so pretty, I hate to see him scrub off all his hair. I plan on calling the vet very soon to get a professional opinion, but I just wanted to know if anyone here might know what the problem is, so I can at least have a head's up of what the bill and treatment might be like.
He has small, round bald spots around his mane and keeps rubbing/scratching it. He's rubbed off a lot of the hair around his tail as well. He was just wormed a couple weeks ago (I know tail-scrubbing can be a sign of worms). I don't know if it's sweet itch or what. Can't find a lot of clear information on the internet... please help!
