Limited hay is good, and it really doesn't even have to be super high quality. I found that my mare stayed at a very nice weight on about 7 lbs of good-but-not-high (stemmier than what I was feeding my TB filly) quality hay daily (1 1/2 flakes). For grain I gave her about a 1/2 lb of Enrich 32 which is a ration balancer pellet daily (she was 225 lbs). It takes the place of grain because it gives all of the nutrience needed for proper maintenance without the added calories of a few lbs of grain that minis do not need. In the winter she was also prone to dry skin so I gave her a powdered vitamin that I just mixed into the Enrich, and she looked fantastic pretty much year round.
