I agree with her being in a round pen to use it to your advantage. Every time you go in there go in with the lead/halter and if you can pet her face then use the lead/halter to rub her with so she learns it won't hurt her.
Like someone else said, if she ignores you or turns her butt to you chase her off, make her do a couple rounds then relax in the middle and if she turns to face you, you turn away.
Do a search on Clinton Anderson on Youtube, there are vids up there that might be helpful to you....

My father used to foster horses from the SPCA all through my childhood. When I got to be of age to actually help, I would. I can halter fully grown horses mainly because we had them in stalls. Eventually they would warm up to us and let us halter them with rope halters before switching to normal halters. This is my first filly. I've tried to get her in the barn and stall her up, but she wont move from her round pen. I was able to get her into the trailer because she followed her momma. We took momma out when I had her in the front. Like I said, the man told me her shots were up to date and I stupidly believed him and he said he would fax the paperwork over to me when he found them. I have her registraion papers, but never got her shot record. When the vet came about, he said she probably never had her shots and needs to be dewormed. I am in the process of scrubbing the trailer down to clean it out to make sure. All my other horses have their shots. I was able to halter them with ease because they were worked with, but she was never been worked with. Thanks for the advice. Ill keep trying. Patience is a virtue in this :) Thanks!!
I wouldn't worry about scrubbing the trailer. The medicine will take care of the worms. If you'll look up information on Coggins, you'll find it is a disease passed on by mosquitoes and once contracted by a horse it is usually fatal within a month or so. So the likelihood of your filly having it is miniscule, and washing the trailer will have no effect even if she did, since it is passed by mosquitoes. Same with West Nile virus. Since it's winter time, unless you are in south Florida, it's unlikely you have anything to worry about.

Sidenote - "coggins" is not a disease. The disease is EIA (Equine Infectious Anemia) - Coggins is the test.
