All the symptoms you are describing also go with a horse with a belly full or worms.

Cushings or ?

This did start out as a Cushings query but quite right on the worms, there are a few things that could be going on here and all as hard to deal with as a 'concerned bystander'
The big problem with worms is that they will contaminate the pasture and spread to any other horses this one is in contact with and larvae can travel from one paddock to another
Most well run barns have some sort of a quarantine policy though and often insist on new horses having a worm count done before they go out with the others
I don't know if this is the case here or not and seems like something that should be discussed in confidence with the barn owner
