He shouldnt need anything other than a joint supplement if he is receiving the correct nutrition. If you arent feeding him the recommended amout of feed that the bag lists, then his nutritional needs are not being met. Is he an easy keeper or does he lose weight easily? How are his teeth? Def keep him on free choice hay. If he keeps his weight easily and doesnt require large amounts of calories, then a ration balancer would be perfect for him.
I would throw the Purina Sr feed in the trash can and go with a quality feed. The only horse feed from Purina that's worth a dang is their Ration balancer (Enrich 12 and 32).
