Still, even though Mongolian horse is often called pony, but they are horses. They are small and if taken into account only size could be called pony, but for all the rest of characteristics they are horses. There are number of small horse breeds, Mongolian, Islandian, Samogotian. By the size they are close to pony, but they are horses. Grain diet does interesting things to horses it is not only much higher in nutrition, but also act as stimulant. Horses that get some grain have much more energy in general, which is not always good thing.
My first Fjord was at a show barn where he ate 2nd and 3rd cutting alfalfa and straight up grain... it was like he was on crack... but crack that makes you fat. LOL!
