If he is on pasture, a grazing muzzle would help.
Or keep him on "dry lot" (off pasture) part of the day to cut back on his grass intake. You could still give him a little grass hay just so he has something to nibble.
I don't have pasture at all (I feed hay all the time) so I don't know as much about maintaining horses on pasture, but hopefully some other folks will chime in too.
The danger of him getting too fat, particularly on pasture, is that he can get founder/laminitis. So it really would be good to keep his weight under control if you can.
(I assume he is on pasture because of the pictures, if he's not, let us know what you are feeding. But he certainly doesn't need any grain in his diet).
