Sorry if you already mentioned... but what is he in pain from? The dental? Or does he have other tooth-related problems?

Soak alfalfa cubes they do wonders. Like a half a bucket give or take. Just for the little extra "help him gain weight." Stay away from sweet feed. Its like giving candy to a baby

He had the dental work done on Friday. His was a little more extensive, there was a small indention in a tooth that was packing food so the dentist worked on that to keep it from packing food while trying to save his tooth. Hunter will be seen again in January to see if it helped or if the tooth will need pulling.

Tonight he was acting like his normal self again, not so quiet and withheld. He has begun eating his hay better, though not quite as fast as normal. We also blanketed him last night since it was down to 40 with 20 mph winds and today since we had up to 35 mph winds and it didn't get above 60 to begin with, when lately it's been in the 80s... Darn weather. He seems happier now that he's feeling a little warmer. I hadn't noticed him seeming cold, but within a little while of being blanketed he seemed better :)
