Ok guys, quick update as I just worked with her again.
I led her in and out, working on her being respectful and not RUNNING into the stall. Everything was going great! I did have to use a chain over her nose but never had to actually engage it once.
Now, the overhang is part of the roof, comes off about 5 feet, and is supported by 4 large beams.
After taking her in and out, in and out, in and out, and she was doing fine, I paused under the overhang for a moment. She got between the overhang post and the wall and all of a sudden lost all sense of reason. First she shoved er in reverse, and I let her take a bit of lead from me because I didn't want to tear her face to shreds, then I kind of skipped up with her quickly saying "ho mare, easy big girl, etc" and she came right over and like wanted to crawl in my pocket. She was genuinely scared.
All that's over there is the outdoor cross ties and her water bucket, which she goes to every day.. I'm very stumped with this one!
