Sorry, I forgot to mention this in my last reply: in the way you are 
using branch_and_bound/minimize, you should not be using a constraint 
here -- C (the cost variable for the objective) should be instantiated 
by your search procecure, i.e. you should be instantiating it rather 
than trying to write a constraint for it.

To count the number of variables in a list, assuming that each element 
of the list is simply either a variable or an integer, you can simply 
traverse the list and count the number of variables, something like:

count_nonground(Xs, N) :-
    (foreach(X, Xs), fromto(0, N1,N2, N) do
         (var(X) -> N2 is N1 + 1 ; N2 = N1)
