Read the directions on the senior feed. People often don't feed as much as they recommend. You might want to add more.

I thought he was looking good.

His weight is decent, he's just lacking topline muscle and may have some sway going on, both of which are best fixed with exercise (riding and/or lunging/round pen).

He does look pretty good. Doesn't really show his age at all. The fill across the back is often the first thing to go as they age. Sometimes you can help it, sometimes it is very hard to get that fill back on. Overall he looks great though.
