Clean but patchy hair loss not ringworm or rainrot....
 
My thoroughbred has patchy, dime sized bald patches on his romp. Vet said it wasnt a fungus like ringworm, or rain rot or any form of obvious dermatitis. They are clean with no bumps, dandruff or scabs. I treated it with a fungicide but not helping. Some patches are experiencing new hair growth but I am seeing more occur. We are just experiencing a change of season so he is getting a winter coat now and I am wondering if that has something to do with it or maybe the Willow tree in his paddock is causing some sort of allergic reaction but it would be every where then and not just on his bum....

Thoughts?

THanks!!
