I would recommend you get someone out there that knows how to deal with rowdy mares if you want her inside.
Chasing her is only going to make her more upset.
Careful with hotwire; some horses have no regard for it when upset.

We might do that, but do you guys think we could use some lime green duck tape to make a chut type thing, and then chase her into her stall?

JDI got my response before I could.
Chasing her around is going to stress her and the baby out..
Maybe you can borrow pannels or something or set up some sort of lean to where she already is?
As far as hot wire goes, baby could dart outside of the hotwire and mama could go after...or she could just plow through it. Hot wire isn't too great for that kind of thing imo

I agree with JDI and Spastic.
Don't chase her and see if you can get some panels or someone out there to get her and her foal inside.

See the whole lean too thing doesnt help with keeping the ferral dogs away. *sigh* we might end up setting up some sort of cute and get her in.

Are they feral dogs or coyotes? Are they actually a threat?

I know it sounds like a dumb question, but we have wild dogs around here all the time and they're not a threat. Even when he was out on pasture where there are coyotes/wolves, there were enough homes and such close enough that they were never a problem. Just asking because it sounded like you were by a main road.

What if you just throw out a flake of hay and walk away for half an hour and let her settle down some. I don't know your mare but for some just munchin on some hay and having a chance to settle is all they need.

I wouldn't try that route. She needs her nutrition. She just foaled and she needs to be healthy to provide for baby. Would she follow you with a bucket of grain or if she heard you put food in her stall at night isntead of in front of her?
