He has some weak pasterns due to them being long. He'll unfortantly will only be good as a pasture ornament. :( He is also pretty sickled hocked.
Yep, it just looks like a bridle with blinkers just rubbed off his skin, he has a cute face though! Hopefully his hair grows back.
Good luck with him. :)

Could the hairless patches be ringworm by chance? Just throwing it out there. It looks kind of like how ringworm tends to start to show up on calves at the farm. Are there any other hairless patches on his body?

I'm probably wrong, but... Just a thought.

@ ShannonSevenfold
Thank you. I really hope that it's not ringworm. He has those hairless patches just around the eyes and mouth. On his body the hair looks normal with no hairless patch.
