HELP! Draft Filly -Untouched and resistant

My friend recently purchased a draft filly. She is 2yrs old and 16.3 hh.
She had no work done with her previously.

After getting her, he has done alot of work and she is now pretty much halter broke -leads/ties/lifts feet/etc.

But She got her leg caught in a fence and since we have been treating the wound she is being really bad. She will kick/bite/lunge at you etc.
We can still walk her arounf/tie her and stuff, but she is just mean. {I know mean isn't a good word to use but I don't know how else to describe it. Its as if she hates us being around].

Any suggestions?
Thanks

If I were a horse and humans touching my wounds for reasons I didn't know I would be pretty upset too. The poor girl is in pain and probably in a bad mood most of the time. I would recommend taking her out just to give her treats, love on her, and talk to her if you don't already. Just try to go easy on her and take into account she's in pain. (That doesn't mean letting her getting away with things is ok though) She'll probably go back to her old self when this is over. Good luck with her!

She will go back to her sweet self, but she can never kick or bite, we have a sweet stallion and he had a wound and got real ornery, but got over it. Drafts are big, I have one of those too, a gelding.
