You think her mother or any other grown horse will put up with that king of behavior? Absolutely not! If she were with older horses they would bite, kick and chase her out of their space, use the whip and make her move her feet out of your space, if you have to whack once or twice then do it. Your not going to do anything worse then an alpha mare would do getting her to be respectful of her space and moving out of it. Be safe.
Yeah I was thinking the same thing that her mother wouldnt let her get away with that crap. Which why I think they took her away to soon. But that's just me. I've never personally dealt with a horse this young before so I didnt really know what to respect. But I didnt expect her to change from the sweet horse she was when the BO was showing me what to do!
