Skinny Arab help please!

What feeds do you recommend to gain weight in a skinny horse?
I have a Arab x paint and she was really skinny when I first got her, but that was due to a tooth which was rotted in her mouth, ever since the tooth has come out, I have been feeding her bran, pollard, calm performer, rice ran oil, and Lucerne charf, she gets 3 small feeds daily and lots of hay, but I'm still not not icing much weight gain. I think it was been around 2-3 months since her tooth was pulled out. Has anyone been in the same situation and can remind anything?
Thanks :)

Have you talked to the vet about it yet?

I would start by looking into a senior feed. Most have higher fat/calorie contents.

Green Broke
When my mare was starved (thanks to the boarding place while I was away) I fed her a large scoop of strategy healthy edge for a couple of months once a day and it helped.
