If he spits out hay or grass, this could mean that his teeth need floating.  The teeth need to remain flat to be able to grind, and if they are long with points, grinding cannot take place, food will be spit out or dropped, and so the horse will not ingest food.  Please have your vet "float" his teeth or find a qualified equine dentist to do so.
