I recently adopted 2 mini mares that were neglected. Ages 4 and 6. They had belonged to an elderly lady and she surrendered them to animal welfare because she was no longer able to care for them. They are slightly thin and their hooves are very overgrown. They were left out without shelter during a very cold spell we recently had and they are now have runny noses and are coughing. They were given wormer and a shot of antibiotic just before I picked them up. My issue is that they are scared and have not let me touch them. I cannot get their hooves trimmed or give them more antibiotics if I can't touch them. When I feed them, I sit down beside them and they get within 4 or 5 foot of me and they seem pretty comfortable with me being close, but the minute I get up they backup away from me. I have them pinned up in a smaller area away from my other 2 minis right now. Should I stall them in my barn so they are in an even smaller space? How can I gain their trust? Do you think I will ever be able to pet and halter them? I know patience is key, but I need help from some of the more experienced folks on here. Thank you!
