Either the Pedigree certificate will stretch your creative writing skills or it will be born when its meant to so don't worry too much!

Other less likely options include impending doom (abortion - but they tend not udder up as much as you describe) and mastitis.

I bought two in lamb yearlings in October, they are due first of january and they are already starting to bag up

It might just be she is milky and is bagging up early

My Texel/Mules always bag up early, they start around 4-5 weeks pre lambing

One of my first-kidders last year bagged up 2 months before due - so much so that I thought the AI had worked after all, (it hadn't - she kidded on the expected date and had a huge udder).

However if you can I would keep an eye on the udder and maybe put my hand on it every few days - they can get too full and develop mastitis.

I had a buffalo who I wanted to give a heifer and she did, I suppose its 50/50 chance you never know what it'll be till its born. I can guarantee though that over half of the my ewes produce ewe lambs and not very many ram lambs, excellent if you want to increase the flock, but bad if you need a lot of ram lambs to sell. ::)
the most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, loving concern.
