My TB is 21, and a very hard keeper. I have always had a hard time getting him to gain weight, and keep it over the years we've been together, and the best solution I had for him, that gave me the best results were putting him infront of a round bale where he could stuff his face as much as he pleased, and I upped his feed to 10lbs a day + Suppliments.
Hay is the most important factor here, getting him access to as much hay as he wants, is the best possible choice right now. Keep an eye on him, to make sure he isn't one of those horses who'll eat himself to death - but honestly, upping his hay intake will do him wonders.
He gets 2lbs of Purina Ultium and 3lbs of Purina Senior = 5lbs, twice a day.
Tripple crown is good because it has alot of beat pulp in it. I would up the Tripple Crown Senior to about 3lbs.
He does very well on this routine.
