I hope there are some experienced mini folks here because I am not and I need help. My mini is 15, I have had her for 1 year. It is hard to keep her from being overweight so I was told several months ago (by the former owner) to omit grain. But I have read that they need some grains for complete nutrition. What is the best grain for a chubby and lazy little mini? I have quality hay and give her some timothy pellets once in a while. She has a mineral salt block in her feed pan but doesn't lick it. I limit her time grazing to 1 hour a day and now there is not much grass left here in Maine. Her pasture is down to nothing. I limit her hay and she gets a treat only when I clean her hooves.
