Halter training 2mo colt

Hello All...

I have a 2mo colt that was born on Mothers Day His mother has never really liked having halters or bridles put on her so anytime we try and put one on the colt she runs causing him to run. If you put her in a smaller stall you can finally after some time get the halter on her. Yesterday the farrier came to trim our mare and said that the colt need a little correction to his front hooves, but allast you can't put a halter on him.

So I need a little advice on how to got about putting a halter on without really scaring him.

Halter the mare and tie her or hold her still.
Rope the colt, get a halter on him and leave it on. It sounds like the manners of the mare are a as big a problem as the colt, I would be doing ground work with her with the colt by her side.
