Cud spilling is normally because of molar teeth problems , hopefully its due to her age and teeth loss before new teeth come through  .  Two other causes are consumption of Rhododendron leaves  which can cause the sheep to vomit  or Listeriosis which because of facial paralysis on one side can cause cud to spill out    , both of these need VET VERY QUICKLY  as death can occur quickly
