If it makes your dad happy graining why take away his simple pleasure?
His horses are getting fat and I don't want them to founder, it scares me.

I think, OP, you are not what most people consider feeding grain. Giving a small handful as a treat is simply that. Giving a treat.
They get a scoop of sweet feed after riding, so I guess that would be a treat.
But my dad was giving them sweet feed 1-2 times a day, and they just sit in a pasture and munch on a round bale all day without much if any excersize.
