    I would stick with what you are doing and then add in beet pulp(as suggested) and give him at least 4 flakes of hay a day, more if you have it.

    There is no problem with feeding Purina, in fact, they have spent the most $$ to research what a horse needs(by actual trained verterinarians and nutritionists), and the Purina Senior feed is the MOST recommended senior feed.

    Some folks have an issue with Purina's "formula" not being "fixed"...the reason it isn't fixed is because the nutrient value in the grains and roughage products change daily, so they have to remix the ingredients to get the desired "fixed" correct percentages of protein, nutrients, minerals, etc. I would rather Purina change some of the ingredients to keep the end result the same.
