Default Hairloss in a horse

This is for a friend of mine. She has a 6 year old gelding whose mane and tail hair sheds in the spring and summer and even some patches over his body. In the fall and winter it grows back. He is on grass hay and oats. It is a Dutch Warmblood.
She tried: acupuncture, change diets, sun protection with blankets, Bach flowers, standard vet care. Nothing works. Any ideas from the horse owners here?
