Most minis don't need grain at all and do just fine on grass hay.

You'll also want to keep her off lush pasture, since that can cause her to founder again.

If you want to turn her out, either do it in a dry lot or put a grazing muzzle on her and restrict her time out on grass.

Minis are the very definition of easy keepers, and it's extremely easy to founder them because of their size.
