No you definitely aren't mean. The longer she goes without a halter, the harder it will be to halter her.
But she should be able to be okay with having her face touched, and ears, I think. When we had the foal at my work, we put the halter on about 3 weeks later, after she could be touched everywhere, including her legs. We had an advantage since she was born on the property, but with that trust, haltering her wasn't too much of a problem.
