Have you asked your vet about it?
How can you be certain he does not rub unless you are literally watching him 24/7?
The skin where the hair is lost looks normal and not red or irritated.
Gelding/stallions may itch their butts is theirs sheaths are dirty and they cannot itch them.
I have asked my vet and they gave me no answer.
No I cannot be completely certain that he does not itch his tail when I am not watching but sometimes you can when they are because the tail hairs are broken and you also can find them on the wall.
Thank you for your reply.
