Mystery injuries

One of the most interesting things about barn life is finding little mystery injuries on your horse. Most of the time, there's no way to ever find out what happened.

Yesterday (Friday), the stable owner texted me on my phone to ask if I had seen the new injury: Apparently, he rubbed a patch of fur off his face. She said it didn't seem sore or anything, but she was confused as to how he'd done it.

Sure enough, when I was there this afternoon, I saw it: a zigzag-like patch of shiny black skin on his right cheek. I don't know if he had an itch and rubbed the fur off while scratching it, or if he was injured. It's not bothering him, so I won't worry about it too much, but still — sometimes I wish my horse could talk so that he could tell me what happens when no one is around!
