It does look like the horse was not fed or was ran off his pile of feed on the ground by other horses. You said he was the only horse that lost weight so that leads me to believe the latter was happening without intervention.
It looks like he may have finally stood his ground and stayed on his pile or was fed far enough away from the others to get his wolfed down before the others could get to him.
hopefully the new vet will give you better insight to the horse's health and condition. Good Luck as he is a really good looking animal and it shows that you love him, but need more knowledge to be better prepared for his needs. Keep digging around this site and others to fill your cup with information.
