It's very important that you provide him with a salt block. A pressed salt block is inexpensive and long-lasting, and a good start in that regard.
In order to feed your horse the proper amount, it's important to weigh your feed. Try standing on a scale and weighing yourself and a bucket. Then, place his "grain" in the bucket and hold it while weighing yourself. Subtract the original weight from the weight with the grain and you'll know how much it weighs. Feeding by weight and not volume is going to help you get started in learning how to feed him.
Has he seen a vet recently? Do you have his vaccination records? When was the last time his teeth were floated?
