I have a mare un handled mare on way t meat works and so bought her thinking I could one day tame her. Three years later am no nearer its all on her terms.  I am gutted and really upset as I have t decide what to do with her. Its all on her terms eats carrot and apple out of my fingers tentatively. And from bucket in my arms but any move I make t take it bit further and she is gone. Tried the round pen and she will just rum round all day every day. She gets so far and that's it she isn't interested in anything else. I have given her three years bin patient and kind and tried and tried.  Am tired of trying and getting nowhere.
