Because you're a big meany head, suggesting that an easy keeper in no work doesn't need grain :P Because we all love obese, foundering, colicy horses, right??
To the OP, DrumRunner is right. Needlessly feeding your horse grain for "fun" or "to experiment", even a ration balancer, when he is an easy keeper and not being ridden enough to burn the excess calories, you can seriously injure or kill the horse. Overfeeding him will lead to obesity, insulin resistance, founder, colic and death. In the interest of your horse I would not feed him anything extra. Thousands of horses support themselves on hay and water alone and live to a ripe old age.
