This isn't her first foal, I don't know how her previous owners treated her when she foaled. Maybe she has had bad experiences in the past?
Anyway, she foaled three days ago and she's still very rude with us. I have no previous experience with brood mares but it seems like everyone on the forum can cuddle their foals no problem. I've only touched the tip of his nose when his mother was distracted in a bucket!
Is this normal? I can only approach her when she's eating. I stroke her and praise her, but the next time I try and come up to her it's ears back and bottom swinging all over again.
