When I got my filly she was 10 months and had probably been touched only a handful of times. She didn't lead, she wouldnt let me near her at all.
It can be done in a million and one ways of course :) My way was to take over her feed pan. I would come in her paddock with her feed, put it down take a hand full of grain and she wasn't allowed to go to her feed without taking some from me. Then I increased to her taking some from me and letting me touch her. Before I knew it I could rub her all over, pick up her feet. Now she is the most social little butterfly :)
Don't worry to much. You two will work it out and she will be your best bud in no time!
