Thank you all for your help.
I tried what had been said here and things look better now. I could get contact with her and start touching her head and body without making her running like a roadrunner (yes, the one with the meep meep...).
She slowly approaches me to sniff and I am happy
Thanks again

Congratulations doc! It will get better the more she gets used to you. The main thing is to be calm and quiet no quick movements and touch her with love in your heart

Congratulations! Foals are so sweet to work with and it is rewarding.

Thank you all for your posts.
Indeed things are getting better and now the filly (name Ruby), approaches me and looks like she trusts me.

Brumby - I hope you are doing well too

Hey, that is one handsome horse! Congrats

Oh, that is wonderful! Congratulations! It looks like she is really trusting you now! Once you gain that trust with a foal you can do basically anything with them. It is so important for a foal to learn to trust people early, as it is so much easier to train them while little than when large horses. I really like the name Ruby too. That is a really sweet name for her.
