I am contemplating stalls for next years foals to be fed in so I can handle next years foals in an enclosed area.
Krystal was too protective of her filly this year and would not even eat her ration if anyone besides me fed her for two weeks. Shalom
Some evade humans completely. Sounds like your mare may be cuing her to stay away and the other filly picks up on it. I think stalls are a great idea; it limits their little escape maneuvers.
I built a small pen attached to a stall for Solei and Fae and that is very helpful to contain and do some training, but never really needed it with Fae; she's like velcro. Maybe something like that would be helpful. Her first days I would just sit in there and she couldn't stand it- she'd have constantly check me out.
