Its good you are looking for another stable. I brought my horse to college with me, because I would be to worried about her at home. My mom always listened to me when I came to horses, because she knew I did alot of research. By the time I was 16 I made most of the decisions about my horse, of course we always talked to our vet.
My mom trusted me about alot of things, because I went throught alot with my first horse. He had injuries all the time, some serious. He had a very hard time keeping weight. Your mom just needs some time to learn to trust you, that you know what you're doing with regards to your mare.
I give grain in small amounts once a day, to supplement hay, because its fortified. (12% Pellets only) You may want to look into a ration balancer supplement, since your mare is only getting hay.
