Ahhh, don't worry too much about her aloof nature; she will come around, or she will always be that way.
I have a filly who is quite aloof herself, and I know for a fact she's never been abused, or neglected. She's just that way...prefers attention (especially if it means work), on her terms...Lol!
My mare, and the colt, are opposite though; Now Flicka only likes attention from me as a general rule, but she's sweet as honey, and extremely gentle even if she's 'iffy' about someone else. No one else can walk up to her in her corral though, even if she comes up to the fence with someone outside the fence.
Blue, on the other hand is a complete Mooosh...He loves attention from anyone, at any time, and shows his clear enthusiasm by running, bucking and rearing around his corral as you're walking up...then he comes trotting up to you, and stops and breathes in your face! Bwahaha!!
