It's actually just dry skin or something like a person's wart, my vet said, only it can't be passed on to other horses. My vet said that, because of it's location, that it could also be from a bit rubbing. I put ointment on it but it hasn't helped. My vet also said to watch it and make sure it doesn't grow because then she would need to find out what, exactly, it is, and then there are many different cures for it. She said that she knew a horse with a dry skin type patch like Penny and it didn't change in 12 years.
