Spots on my thoroughbred mare

My thoroughbred mare, has these spots on her hinds, its on both sides and she's losing hair. Just curious if anyone else has had this problem, and what is the correct method to cure this. I will post a pic, tho the quality is not the greatest.

Thanks

I can't really see what you're talking about, but if they're round and she's losing hair, it's probably ringworm.

Ya they are not perfectly round, but they are like 1 inch by 1 inch spots, if it was ring worm, wouldnt I get ring worm from touching the spots?

It could definitely be rain rot.

Yes, you could. Ringworm is a fungus, and it's transferable between species.

Ya its been around since november,and I haven't got ringworm yet, actually come to think of it, this only started once we started blanketing her, could it have been from mold on the blanket?

Either way, if it ring worm or rain rot, swab it with vinegar it will kill the bugs to both.

Have your blankets cleaned if you think it might be them, if its too cold to send them off a good spray down with lysol and some time inside out in the sun should kill any suspected skin irritants.
