Okay so I ended up with a under weight mare that has a filly. I want to train her (walking on the lead rope etc.) But I don't want to tale her from her baby. We also have a stallion and the mare is worried about him so she doesn't want to be held on to so she can get to her baby. How do I go about training her? 

Fun facts: 

Moms name is Daleen

Baby's name is Caiden 

Stallions name is Emir

We don't have a round pen (if we did I would use it)

Mom and baby were separated when we got them

Baby is under weight as well but both mom and baby are gaining weight 

Thanks for the help!

Well it's been a while! I'm now training the mare to be rode, we got rid of the stallion. We got 2 new horses for my sisters (mini pony and Arab). The baby is actually a boy (vet assistant said he was a girl!). I just started working on her under saddle and now her and the baby are doing great. Although she is a hassle under saddle, she doesn't turn well, hard to get her to go, but with time it'll be alright. 

Oh gosh! I am SO sorry to hear about your horse. 

But it is not her problem that you share a negative relationship with her.
