First, if you can, have a bottle or a pre-filled syringe, of banamine. IF it is colic or if it gets worse, the banamine will help relieve the pain till you can call a vet. I have a bottle of it as the last colic we had on our farm, it was bad and we ended up giving almost the whole bottle to our draft mare by morning before making the decision to rush her to the emergency clinic.
That being said, his over all body looks thin. What do you feed him? Has he had any health issues lately that you have had to treat him for? What do you do use him for? Riding? Trail? Showing?
Have you thought about giving him probiotics? We did that for a good 60 days with our mare till she was back on track. It does help if their stomach is upset or they just need help with the good flora in their gut, which also helps with digestion and better absorption of food. If you can't afford the probiotics, see if he will eat flavored yogurt in his grain, ours love strawberry.
If it continues, I really urge you to contact your veterinarian and have them do a complete check up on him, teeth, coat, and see what they say. Good luck.
