Thanks guys :)
I do ride him at least five out of seven days a week, for at least an hour each ride. I do a lot of trotting with him, but I'm going to wait to start cantering him a bit more than I do until he is re-shod, which will be tomorrow. When I get some jumps set up, I will be jumping him every other day or so.
Right now, I have him eating 2 quarts of Dumor Performance Feed 14% in the morning, with 3 flakes of grass hay. He gets the same exact amount of feed and hay at night as well. The only difference in the feedings, is that in the morning, I put a very little bit of jello (in powdered form like it is before its made) in his grain, as my farrier said it would help him grow some side wall in his feet because it has gelatin in it. At night he is getting Dumor Weight Booster mixed with his grain.
I'm going to call his previous owner tomorrow sometime to ask when he was last wormed. We plan on worming our horses soon, but I want to make sure he hasn't already been wormed recently before I worm him. He did have his coggins back up to date on June 28. He also had a vet check that same day (of course, lol.). So, I think he may have already been wormed last time he went to the vet for an annual check up.
