Maybe better quality hay or a higher protein grain/pellet feed. His withers stick up quite high and his spine (topline) back to his rump could use some filling out. He may just need more feed and not different feed.
You will get all different advice on what to feed him. I would suggest consulting a purina or nutrina rep in your area. They will come out for free and talk to you about the condition of your horse and make some suggestions. You can also have your hay analysed by them or an extension office to see if it is lacking nutrients.
