scabby patches on belly

Hi all...

My 16 yr old TB has scabby patches on his belly which are missing hair. I just noticed this yesterday. Does anyone know what this could be? I was thinking possibly ringworm. I've been trying to find pics online of ringworm but haven'nt had any luck. If anyone could offer advice or has pictures of what ringworm looks like could you pass it along? Also what would be the best way to treat? The weather is cold this week in Ohio so I was hoping for a warm day to bathe him with some medicated shampoo.

Thanks much.
