I have recently got to weanlings. They are New Forest ponys, Ruby was out on the forest and is really good. Poppy is only 4 months and is really scared. They are in the same stable, although I am working on that. Ruby is the oldest and the best behaved, she allows me to touch her all over and run a soft brush over her. She also allows me to nearly pick up her feet. Poppy however runs to the back of the stable when I walk in. She tries to kick me when I stroke her. But strangly lets me pick up her bucket and feed her. She has a headcollar on.
What I do so far is sit in the stable letting her sniff me and feeding her hay. I am quite concerned and want to stop this behaviour, just not sure how to. I am prepared to hear the worst and am aware that people are going to be harsh. Thank you in advance.
