Because of his age I would say it would be ok to put him on triple crown senior feed. Most of the horses at our barn get it no matter their age. Other things you could try are...Corn oil, soaked beet pulp, alfalfa, rice oil (this ones a little more pricy)or I have heard omega works as well.

Have you had him checked for ulcers. If he has them they could be causing him not to gain weight no matter how much he gets to eat.
