Unhappy What's wrong with this colt?

My boyfriends sister gave us this horse for a few reasons. 1) She had to many horses to take care of. 2) She thought he was ugly. 3) She thought the mare was going to get starved down from nursing him. The sad part is the mare was a 23 yr old, and she was very starved down from nursing him. Unfortantialy the mare did not make it. If we hadn't taken this colt it is believed that he wouldn't have made it either. I am now noticing some very unusually things about it. He is starting to lose a lot of his fur. There are patches of him that there is no fur at all. He is very short. I have a colt that was born 6 days before him and the size difference has me very concerned. The "leader" of the herd has started to kick him out. He eats a LOT but looks as though he isn't getting any of the nutrience (sorry for the spelling) needed. Does anyone have any answers for me? I can post pics if needed.

I would have a vet out to look at him. My guess is though a good bath and a check on his diet might do the trick, along with some worming if you haven't done it already.
