I am assuming you have had his teeth checked and he is chewing ok. Based on the horses age and that he is losing top line, has the vet checked him for cushings? I only ask because I had an older gelding with the same symptoms, and my vet just kept saying it was due to age, well then I had another vet come out and she diagnosed him with cushings, we changed his diet and he improved somewhat, but his teeth were pretty much gone so he could only eat mushy food. But the diet for cushings horses is low carbs and starches, with lots of fat and fiber. But if he is not chewing well then all the grass and hay is not going to help.
