A fungus? could he simply be rubbing himself on something around his pasture? Do you have anything lose or hanging around his field?

Is he rubbing himself there? That could cause a loss of fur. ;) Or a fungus like M2G said.
Hm, if it's just rubbing then you can try using Mane & Tail that usually makes hair grow! :)

Ride more, worry less.
