You're right, time for a change! :)
So assuming that he is, in fact, eating the proper 2% of his body weight in forage per day (about 20 lbs) we can move on to another level!
Sweet feed isn't going to do a lot for him, especially now. Instead, start feeding senior feed in the recommended servings. (Nutrena Senior Feed for a horse his size, in addition to hay, would be about 7-9 lbs per day, and you can look into other brands, like Triple Crown, etc.)
That alone should start making a difference, but if you'd like to do more than that, think about adding an Omega-3 supplement. :)
He is definitely underweight, but an improvement to his diet should make a big difference! :)
The hills were bathed in moonlight, the shadows not so stark;
Silver light reflected off his brown hide as he held me in the dark
