pregnet mare whent "wild".

To start this off me and my mom bought a 2 year old at a sale barn 4 years ago. She use to be a pasture pet . Then 2 and a half years ago I got the crazy idea to break her . She took a saddle never bucked or reared. Dint want to move actually haha. So I broke her out and she is the BEST mare ever. Has the do anything to please you attitude. Never kicked bit are done anything crazy just laid back. Well she was bred and had a 2011 filly .she got bred back be cause we fell inlove with the foal. So the "WILD" part is when I was lunging her she out of nowhere turned and kicked me .Shocked the HELL out of me.Then I was walking her over a 6in log and she whipped her head back and bit me I popped her the instant she did. The The worst part was.i had tied her to a wooden post to get a rock out. I picked up her feet fine. I was going to untie her and she all of a sudden started rearing and freaking out. She stop finally .the 1 second later reared twice and plowed right throw 3 flimsy wooden rail!!! And ripped the wooden post out of the cemented grown! Did I mention she is 8 month pregnant while pulling this stunt. She's totally fine as of today. My question is is this typical behavior . For apregnant mare that was bombproof horse going completely crazy one minute but after all of this right back to normal behavior? Sorry for the long post just though I should state all the infomation: heres apic for fun

Your handling skills are lacking. This mare doesn't want to be bothered with you, and is showing you she is the boss.

And breeding her did not help anything more than likely. Just gave her more attitude now.

Work on your ground handling skills by finding someone to learn from that knows what they are doing. This mare has no respect for you, and will end up hurting you, and will pass this attitude along to foal more than likely.

Also consider the possibility that something has gone wrong internally, and she needs to be vetted thoroughly. Scar tissue, infection, or what have you.

Sounds like she might have a cyst on an ovary. This can cause very aggressive, even stud-like behavior.

You should have her vet checked immediately - as all of those signs typically indicate pain. Except kicking on the lunge, that's just disrespect.
But I have heard on more than a few counts that often times when mares carry colts the extra testosterone in their system can make them more aggressive. Of course this is just here-say and it could be something very serious (like others have mentioned).

Definitely check her out for physical problems (and the drastic personality change points to something along those lines), but it is possible that you just didn't break her in as well as you thought you did. You may have to go back and work with a trainer to get her going again and correct any problems that have developed.
