Is she eating any ration balancer, grain, hay, etc., that you can lure her into the pen with? You could potentially trap her in once she walks into the pen to eat. Being that she is pregnant you really do want her to be used to being handled as soon as possible. That way if she has complications, she won't have to be traumatized further by the scary two legged demons trying to hold her down or something.
So sorry to hear that you past farrier was terrible. I had an experience with a farrier who hit my mare with a rasp for not holding still when he was scraping her frog, so I can feel you there. I'm glad that you have a better one now though!
