I've had minis on and off for ten years, mine have done fine on your basic Purina Strategy. A lot of the breeders and show barns I've come across use it or a 50/50 mix of Strategy with something else. I find it easy enough since this feed has been good for nearly every horse I've ever owned, one less "special feed" to carry in the barn! Its not the absolute best choice out there for them but doesn't cause them to lack in anything and Your horse and mini could both be on this, it would be better than sweet.
I feed our 31" stallion 1 cup (actual kitchen measuring cups) AM and 2 cups PM. The mares get 2 cups AM and 2 cups PM because they are a bit taller and can use a little more. I've pretty much gone by whatever keeps there top line on best. The stallion gets less than 1 flake of hay a day in the summer and has a little grazing he can do, the mares get 1 flake a day each but have access to more grazing.
Your boy looks pretty good over all weight wise from the photo but he could use weight up on his top line, beet pulp would help that as well.
