First of all, congrats on your foal, she is so cute!
I would be very careful in your situation. It is my understanding that this foal was a gift to you, correct? You did not pay for her? If so, I would not be telling the mare's owners (your benefactors) what they can and can not do with the foal, unless they are putting baby in danger.
It won't be long until the foal is weaned and you move her to another barn where you will have absolute say. She will still be a baby, not wrecked yet,lol.
I would focus mainly on ensuring the filly is respectful of You when you are with her. I would try to use the utmost respect when dealing with the other owners, especially if your contract is just verbal. Because with just a promise, I would assume that until the filly is weaned and in your hands, she is still theirs.

I do have a contract stating the baby is mine. I made sure to have a contract in hand so that things don't go bad. They have a young granddaughter who likes the foal and I didn't want to do all the training and have them back out because she wants it. So, I do have a contract stating she's mine and that I am in charge of all things done with her. So technically, she is mine. I don't think she'll be "ruined" I just don't want everything I'm doing with her to go backwards because of some people who have no idea what they're doing with her, if you catch my drift?

Right on! GREAT that you've got your ownership in writiing! You're smart to head "stuff" off at the pass!

I'm so glad that they were cooperative! **crosses fingers**

Yes! I did not want a situation where I spend a ton of time training her and then NOT be able to take her once she's weaned.

They seemed to understand where I was coming from when I explained it to them so I think that's a good start.
