A low nutritional hay will be fine. Low nutritional does not mean cow hay, just year old timothy, fescue, or similar. The point is for it to be low in nutrition but not quality. A horse wants to graze and to sit in a stall for 10+ hours at a time with nothing to do is never a good thing.
If you have a paddock or dry lot or can cordon off a place in the pasture where she won't get grass will work better, mentally, then a stall.
The absolute best way to keep the fat off is to turn it into muscle by work - it's just that most of us can't do that for one reason or another.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
