I agree, I would give her hay.
Let her alone for a bit and try again.
Try not to rush things too, or get frustrated, as she'll pick up on it.

We got her in! We made a chut of lead ropes and hoses and let her walk in. She came up to me on her way in and let me grab her halter and walk her in! Sigh that was an intresting night!

Somehow I would have brought the mare and foal in when the mare foaled and the vet was there....especially if I was aware that coyotes were known to prowl outside.

A new birth in the open, is like opening a jar of honey next to a hive of bees.

We did. We wern't planing on her foaling outside anyway, if you had read the other form, you would have known that. She foaled compleatly at random. She didn't bag up or show any sighns at all. She also has let us catch her the last few days. She was just bing a brat tonight, but after awhile of debating weather to stay out in the cold or go inside with food water hay and straw, she came in.

I think it was just confusing because when I read your post I thought the baby was 4 days old and had been in the field since birth and you hadn't been able to catch mama or get near the baby. That was why I had made the comment about the vet needing to see the baby within the first 24 hours. It was just a little confusing.

Have they been coming in every night before that?
