More than likely she is not bred as breedings in August and early September are less likely to occur due to the warm/hot weather.
If her baby is 2-3 months than she wouldn't have had the right weather after lambing to come back into heat and it is unlikely she would have with a lamb on her.
My ewes are just (barely) starting to come into heat now near the end of Sept. She appears to be an older ewe and as they get older their belly tends to sit lower so their hips don't fill out. I have worked with Jacobs some in the past and I would say she is just coming back around as she get better and more food in her and that she is just an older ewe compared to the rest of her flock.

Hope this helps....
