Try him on some Nutrena Safe Choice then, maybe 2 cups twice a day and a half pound of soaked alfalfa pellets. You might also try adding some daily probiotics to his diet for a while. My mare developed quite the haybelly after foaling while she was nursing her filly, even though she was getting good quality feed and hay. The probios helped her regulate her digestion and get more nutrition out of what I was feeding her, and the hay belly started to go away within two weeks. Its completely gone now.
Like I said, Purina Miniature Horse and Pony feed is pretty good as well. How old is he exactly? If you feed Purina, I'd probably go with 1.5 lbs split into two feedings, plus the alfalfa.
