Also may be a stab in the dark, but I would treat her with a pour on wormer and or a pour on insecticide that works on lice. Then I would also try some Listerine mouth wash in a spray bottle to treat the affected areas at least once or twice a day until the hair returns, if it is fungal, the Listerine will wipe it out, if it is from a parasite, the pour-ons will also fix it.

with the discription of black, I think you have fly bite trouble, the black is fly dirt (poop), dried blood from the flies digestion as they sit and feed.

Could be photosynthesis. It happens when they eat a certain plant - makes them sensitive to the sun. You need to get her in a barn out of the sun for awhile - they do get better.
