Can you make where she is smaller?
May (if you or someone near you is experienced enough) to get on another horse and try and catch her or something.

StormyBlues 02-24-2009 08:50 PM

no, we don't want to risk one of our other horses, because we are 99.99% sure she would flip out and charge them

appylover31803 02-24-2009 08:53 PM

I'm not sure what to tell you.
have you tried just being out there and waiting for her to come up to you? Maybe even putting her food out there and waiting for her to come up to it.

Does she have a halter on?

Why do you need to catch her? Maybe she just needs time to settle down after the birth? She just foaled, right?

StormyBlues 02-24-2009 08:56 PM

If we just stand there she comes galloping up with her teeth bared and ears pinned. And we tried that but she was to quick. She does have a halter on, but won't us get close!

Oh, and is this her first foal?

StormyBlues 02-24-2009 08:57 PM

We need to catch her because it is supposed to rain, and it is already really cold, and we have LOTS of cyotes out here! I'm NOT leaving her and the baby out there! And she foaled 4 days ago

There's no way to make where she is smaller?

Can you set up something so you can open up the gate and let her into a stall?
