The word finally got around to me, "Harmony has a spot" from hubby, and "What happened to Harmony" concern from the daughter - and so, the 20 questions began. What I found out was that Harmony has a mysterious spot that appeared a few days before I was informed. No idea from what. No obvious injury. The skin is not broken, just a very slight skin irritation near the middle. Her hair is gone from a rather large area, in a rather odd shape. The spot doesn't bulge, and is not any warmer than any other part of her body. Not tender to the touch, and her movement is fine. Was it nerves? Did "resident pony" chew it off? Did she scrape herself in the woods? Who knows. My guess is Harmony rubbed the hair off, altho the round edge shape may indicate otherwise.
Please excuse the muddy photo, it has thankfully dried up since this photo was taken not to mention she's had many good brushings. Mud is hard to avoid with rough board, in wet WI spring weather. Her hair is already beginning to grow back. She's shedding like crazy now, too bad I can't fill in the spot!
