Ziggy Report



Nothing yet. After April 5, her next potential due date is April 26. [Correction. Nigerian Dwarfs have a gestation of 145 to 150 days,  
I've been told, which would make it April 21 to 26.]

Oh my, can she really get any bigger...poor thing.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend. xo

Michelle said...

I don't think she plans to move until they come out, so let's hope she's just a day or so late!

Jaclyn Hicks said...

I hope and pray she has those babies quick!! She looks pretty done!

Farmer Barb said...

How does a goat (or a person) get that big and bounce back? How does she walk around? Oh, poor Zig...

Leigh said...

Sherri, especially with all the weight shifted down like that! Most of the photos I've seen of goats that size end up with triplets or quads.

Michelle, oh I hope so!

Jaclyn, prayers appreciated!

Barb, I can't help but think it takes a physical toll. I read on the Kinder Goat list that does who have multiples every year often end up with hind leg problems as they age. I certainly hope it's not the case with Ziggy.

Tami said...

Wow! That first pic says it all. That's one pear shaped Momma. Good luck with the birthing!

A. Wright said...

Oh my that is one preggers goat, the poor lady. She must be very ready to be done.

thewovenspoke said...

OMG! I hope she has those kids soon, she looks ready to pop! I can't wait to see them.

Stephanie said...

Oh my, she looks like she is about to explode :/

Ginny Poole said...

Bless her heart!!! I can hardly wait to see the babies! :)

famousthecat said...

Aw, sweet Ziggy! How many babies do you think she's got hidden away in there? I hope for her sake she gets on with it soon!

Pam said...

Omg...poor Ziggy! She looks so uncomfortable, I hope she kids soon! Hugs Ziggy!

Renee Nefe said...

sign that eviction order Ziggy! Get those kids to move out!

I think the kids just like it too much in there.

Renee Nefe said...

I was just over at cakewrecks.com and perhaps what Ziggy needs is a baby shower with a cake! ;o)

Katy said...

triplets or quads! ?
Poor Ziggy, I feel pain just looking at her. Kinda like my next door neighbor who's due next week - every time she walks down to the mailbox I want to whimper.
Let's get this show on the road! I hope you get a bunch of little girls :)

Woolly Bits said...

oh my, is she trying to give birth to a whole herd?? reminds me of women pregnant with 5 or 6 babies.... I hope all is going to work out well!

SmithGang said...

Oh my poor Ziggy! Hope she delivers safely. I would definitely say triplets:) I agree all girls would be a blessing.

Leigh said...

Oh yes, trips or quads, all girls!!!!

Florida Farm Girl said...

Poor baby! She can hardly walk. Sure hope those babies get here soon and in good health.

Judy said...

Ziggy has my sympathy! Is Ziggy going to get the year off next year?

Mama Pea said...

What is the record number of healthy kids delivered? I think Ziggy's going for it. I don't think there's any way she could go three more weeks, do you?

Carolyn said...

Oh. My. Gawd.

But, are you sure she's pregnant? LOL!

MTWaggin said...

Oh my she looks rather uncomfortable!

Nina said...

Poor girl looks like she's ready to explode! I'm hoping that she's just late. I can't imagine her having another 19 days to go. Poor girl.

luckybunny said...

Unless she's got a lotta babes in there April 26 seems far away for the looks of her. But it's so hard to say with these girls sometimes. Sometimes they are really reliable but sometimes they are certainly not. Paws crossed everything goes smoothly when it does happen!

icebear said...

Its hard to believe that those fine little goat legs can carry so much. I hope everything goes smoothly when its time to go!

nancy said...

Poor girl, she must be exhausted!

Donna Costa said...

Seems impossible that she could go that much longer. Poor thing will be too exhausted from carrying them around to give birth. Keeping my fingers crossed for good things.

Tina T-P said...

I'm with Michelle - I hope she's just a few days late for this date. Gives new meaning to the term "wide body" T.

Sandy said...

Leigh,

Poor Ziggy, she looks so uncomfortable. I don't think Ziggy will be waiting until the 26th of April. She looks like it's going to happen much sooner than the 26th.

I hope everything goes well with her delivery.

Thistle Rose Weaving said...

Zig, you poor little thing...Those babies need to be born...quick!

Peaceful said...

oh dear! I hope you have a vet on call :(

The Weekend Homesteader said...

Good Gracious! She is big!

Julene said...

She does look a bit large! It will be an exciting day when she delivers and fun to see how many! She may need your help!! "Goat mommy helper!"

Benita said...

She looks like a pear with legs.

Quads??

Elaine said...

Poor baby! I hope everything goes well (and soon!)

Shiralyn said...

I feel her pain. I went 3 weeks over my due date.

Thistle Cove Farm said...

Bless her heart...she's Enormous!

Leigh said...

She looks the worst when she's sitting like that because all the weight sinks down. When she's up and about it isn't so bad but she definitely is a big pregnant.

Pat26 said...

Hi Leigh :)

Ah bless her not easy being a female :):) She looks happy and content doesn't she. Very healthy looking animal. Her kids will be super cute. I am sure you are excited.
God bless
