I would take a fecal into the vet's and get a count. If its high - then do the power packs. Those work great.
Personally - if your pony is already fat, does he really need the senior feed? That is just going to make him fatter. You can buy a loose vitamin & mineral supplement and allow him access to it so he can have it free choice. They will lick it up like they do a mineral block, but the loose stuff is usually a little better quality.
Pictures would really be helpful. My other concern is that he may be turning into an IR horse where you will have to really watch what he eats. A grazing muzzle might also be an option to limit what pasture he gets.
All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
