Ground, cracked or whole? Ground feed can slow motility in a sheep and they really can digest whole grains just fine. Your grass hay would have to be poor stuff for that not to be a pretty good ration.
Oh I didn't see salt in the ration. We use loose mineral and loose salt after we had some DOA lambs with iodine deficency and a marked improvement switching to loose salt. Those PM's paid off fast! It was just one breed (Rideaus) that had the problem but I think they all benefit from free-r choice salts and mineral. Impresions aren't very scientific though.
