Sometimes worming 2 weeks in a row will do the trick. Different brands of wormers might be more effective. Your vet may suggest a power pack which is intense worming.

flake weight can vary greatly. Example: 6 flakes, 3 lbs each = 18 lbs, 6 flakes 5 lbs each =30 lbs. The latter being better, obviously. A lb of hay has around 900 calories, so the first example gives 16200 calories, the second 27000. BIG difference. Same with the scoops....big variation. Beetpulp....scoops before or after soaking.
See what I mean?
You said, you've had him for two weeks.....give him time to settle in and gain that weight. He might be stressed from the move, new environment, new everything. Take pictures now, and a month from now and then compare. If there's still no change, you can get worried

He gets different amount of flakes depending on how much they weigh , beet pulp scoops after being soaked.
He didn't move , I've know him for 4 years and he's been at my barn the whole time, It was just a money/ papers swap. Same stall, same food, everything.
And he hasn't even seen his previous owner in over two years (I don't know if that makes a big difference stress wise/ he's not stressed about missing his previous owner)

Okay, then we'll have to dig deeper. My first priority after weighing all his feed( I know, get his teeth checked and done if necessary. Maybe bloodwork could shed some light if there's any internal issue.
If you could post a current picture, that would help.
