Have you considered adding something to his diet that might up his protein/fat intake a bit?
I am a huge advocate of feeding alfalfa to hard keepers because it adds nutrients and protein without adding sugars like a lot of processed feeds. You can also add oil to his diet to increase his fat intake, which should help him bulk up a bit.
Yes he gets free feed hay free feed chopped alfalfa and he gets grain twice a day with wheat germ oil or flax seed(whichever I happen to buy) and he gets perminant pasture, a probiotic, a ulcer perventative suppliment, salt block, mineral block, a vitamin supp, and lots of love :)
