Feeding yearlings

My colt is 17mths old and although growing well he has always been ribby,he has put on weight but it just doesnt seem to go around his ribs,he is regualrily wormed changing wormers with correct types and seen by the vet who wasnt worried as she said he'd grow into himself.I have seen colts/fillies at shows that don't look like this and am wondering hat supplement/feed will get the weight around him and not underneath.he is currently on grass and some hay,no hard feed.he is well in himself and growing like a weed,ith lots of muscle.He's a TB Sports horse.
