my boy isn't a good doer either...costs me a fortune in winter but i love him. Have you tried dodson and horrell sixteen plus pasture mix and build up cubes??? If this helps this is what my boy has in winter:
breakfast: scoop bowl of senior hi-fi, 1/2 garlic scoop, 1kg of pasture mix, 1kg build up cubes, veg oil, veg or apple
Dinner: scoop bowl of senior hi-fi, 1/2 garlic, 1.5kg of pasture mix, 1kg build up cubes, veg oil, veg or apple.
I also have to give him 3/4 bale of hay ever night Nov - Feb but at the minute he is having 1/2 bale. Its the only way i can keep his weight on but i must say he is 17.1hh.
Try the dodson and horrell build up cubes i found they are fantastic. Don't use th mix cause you go through loads and the cubes are more cost effective. What are you currently feeding?
