    In this case I'd definitely feed him more Senior and less of everything else. On the bag it should say if it can be a complete feed or not. If it is, then figure out what he should weigh and give him that amount in 2 or 3 feedings/day while you stand guard over it. He'll be able to gain the weight and you won't have to stand around forever while he tries to eat.

    I have an appendix gelding he was a rescue and he was the same way.! It takes alil while. But lung him and back him. I lung mine walk a lap or 2 then trot him 10 laps then lope him start off at about 3 then work up to 5. Then after I do that I back him around the whole round pen then do the same thing the other direction. He has gained a lot of muscle and is looking really good now.! Ride him up and down hills too. I work mine everyday except weekends because they need a break too haha. And if I miss a day during the week then I work one day on the weekend. It has really helped my gelding.!
