What does this look like to you?

My mare has had odd spots popping up on her. She's exposed to another horse with rain rot and I had thought she might be getting it but this is the biggest spot and it doesn't look like rain rot to me. Any ideas?

Rain Rot isnt contagious but Ring worm is and without pictures its hard to say. Hope you find out what it is and get it cleared up.

I'm not getting the pictures, can you describe the spots? If they're circular patches of hair loss then it's probably ringworm. Ringworm is actually a fungal infection and it is highly contagious, people can get it from horses. Rain rot is not contagious but if the horses were living in the same conditions it is possible that they both contracted it. Pictures would be great in figuring out what this is.

That strikes me as ringworm. If someone else sees something else feel free to correct me. Here's a site with info on how to treat ringworm:

Make sure that you keep yourself from getting infected, I've had it and man does that stuff itch!

Yes, It looks like ringworm to me too.

Ringworm is highly contagious, not only to other horses...But to YOU as well.
