If he doesn't need help with weight while on grass, I would put him on a ration balancer, my favorite being Buckeye Gro'n'Win. It provides all of the necessary good stuff, without putting a bunch of extra stuff in it.
I have fed Purina Maintenance before, and Purina products just aren't my favorite. There are much better brands and feeds to be giving. Buckeye makes comparable feeds if you want to continue with something like Maintenance in the winter. But, with owning a senior horse, I have just become partial to feeding a senior feed instead of a maintenance feed, my favorite being Triple Crown senior. Buckeye also has several senior feeds that are made to be easier on the gut.
For my 22 year-old horse that also turns nuts on certain feeds, I feed 6 lbs of Triple Crown senior and 1 lb of Buckeye Gro'n'Win each day. My horse is a harder-keeper, so I bet you could get away with a lot less senior feed.
