Fatten up a skinny horse?

My horse Bo when I bought him recently he was a little underweight, and then he is starting to loose more. He's not sick because he has seen a vet. Im just wanting to know the best or fastest way to fatten him up. I know it takes time. But I would like him to get his weight back on by May if its possible..
Please help? Thanks.

What are you currently feeding him? When was he last de-wormed or his teeth floated? I know you say he has been vetted, but was that just a general health check or specifically in regards to weight loss -- was it before he started his recent loss of weight or after?

He is currently eating Purina Strategy Professional Formula GX. And he was just dewormed about a week or two ago. He might actually need his teeth floated.. I'm not sure when the last time that was done.
