My mare is a queen, by no means is she sweet and lovey. She is completely independent, but when she's on the lead rope or working she will do whatever you ask of her and do it willingly without issue. She has never been aggressive. This is her first pregnancy, she is utd and healthy. She has recently become nasty, she rears when you put a lead on her, pushes and leans on people and her pasture buddy. Literally walks into her buddy as if she isn't there. Turns her rear and tries kicking at whomever gets near her, pins her ears when I try to do anything with her besides brushing her. I'm allowed to do that much. I do not allow this behavior and I correct it when she does it, but I'm worried about this lasting or getting worse or being one of those who won't let you handle her foals. Has anyone else had an aggressive pregnant mare? How long did it last? How was she after foaling? Oh and my vet concluded it to be hormones and her not understanding the changes and foal moving inside her being maiden. And she is also not a mareish mare at all either, very independent and neutral in the herd, not dominant and not on bottom. She usually is the Robin Hood mare making sure the bottom mares get their share to eat and don't get pushed around by the dominant mares. She is due May 3rd.
