Wow. A few things.
She seems a bit young to be weaned, IMO. So, she's never been handled (WHY?!?) and she's going to be haltered, put in a trailer, and taken from her mommy all on the same day? Sheesh. Sounds like a BAD day for this baby!
You are not going to be able to get her used to the halter, leading, and trailering all in one day. She SHOULD have been getting handled and used to these things all along. In reality, she'll have to be caught, forced into a trailer, and then go through a TERRIFYING ride away from her mommy for the very first time.
How long have you known you were getting her? Why haven't you (or the seller) been working with her? Is there a reason you have to get her now?
You said you're afraid you won't be able to keep her calm? Given all of the above, I'm fairly positive she'll be the furthest thing from calm.
