Welcome to Animal Tales, the blog linky that brings together all sorts of animal blog posts. It runs from Tuesday morning thought to Friday night and showcases a wide range of animal related posts.
This week we woke to snow one morning and it was probably the first time Harry had seen snow as this region had none last year. He loved it! Saari, being half Husky, also loves the snow so the two had great fun playing out in it.

I posted a piglet picture on Sunday as I needed a photo for an advert and thought it was so cute I should share it. 6 piglets are now sold and we are left with just 2 boys. It's always a bit sad to see them go but we know we don't have the space to keep all of them. Even with the numbers we have got it has meant a lot of rearranging of pig pens to make sure everyone is in suitable winter quarters. Coco the sow is rather lean after feeding 8 hungry piglets for 8 weeks and in need of extra rations so was put in her own pen with a grassy outdoor enclosure. She could have done without trying to get out mind you and emergency fence repairs were needed on Sunday.
Thank you everyone who joined in with the linky last week. Travel with Intent gave us a very interesting post on the carrier pigeons who played such an important role in the wars and I will be saving Purfylle's tips for looking after animals in the heat for when the temperature warms up this summer.
Feel free to come and add your animal related posts to the linky below. The posts can be old or new and as varied as the animals who we share our world with. There's a Pinterest Board with pictures from all the linked blogs which you can see here and if you tweet with the hashtag #AnimalTales I'll retweet you. Just give me a nudge if I appear to have forgotten you.
Full details of the linky can be found here and once again can I remind people to comment on a few of the others who link up. It's only polite and keeps the thing working!
