Something Very Strange is Going on with BO's Percheron.

Ok, by BO has a black percheron named Moon. She's my favorite horse in the stables, but lately, something strange has been wrong with her. It all started (I think) at the breeding farm. Moon went nuts and had to be hobbled. Somehow, she broke a shipping halter and escaped. After that, she hurt herself terribly. Mostly on hip and the side of her face. She also slipped and sat on a women. Not sure if it hurt her though... I really don't know the story in detail.

A few weeks after that, the hair on the side of her face began to fall out all over the place. It looks terrible I have to say. Are these two events connected? What could it be?

Did the hair start to fall out on the side that she injured? Is it falling out near the site of the injury, what type of injury was it? Road rash a cut, ect. She could possibly be rubbing her face on something because the injury site is itching as it heals. If she's wearing a fly mask or halter most of the day, that could also be rubbing, but it would commonly be equally distributed over both sides of the head, not just one.

It doesn't look like she's been rubbing; the hair just literally falls out. I can't remember too well, but there might have been some reddening... I'll take a picture with my phone Friday (my next lesson) and post it for reference.
