Animal Tales - 27


Welcome to Animal Tales, the blog linky that brings together all sorts of animal blog posts from all over the world.  It runs from Tuesday morning thought to Friday night and showcases a wide range of animal related posts. 

Update on that grumpy pig

Those of you who read about Coco, our escaping pig, last week might have thought that the tale was over but Coco had other ideas and escaped 3 more times before we finally managed to get the fencing sufficiently Coco-proofed to keep her in ... or it may just be that she was no longer in season and so her desire to get out was somewhat diminished.  Pigs come into season every 3 weeks so she may well try and get out again then but with luck Simon will have finished all the brand new fencing he is putting up and she'll be thwarted.  If only Coco were as laid back as Charlotte and Peardrop, then we'd never have any escaping pig issues!



Don't forget our Pinterest Board


If you are on Pinterest don't forget that Animal Tales has it's own group board which you can join:  https://www.pinterest.com/ecogiteslenault/animal-tales/and details of how you can join can be found on Animal Tales 21.  Please do ask away if you have any questions - I am only just getting my head round Pinterest but if used properly it can be a very useful tool to drive traffic back to your blog.

********* 
Last week it seemed to be the Rosies who dominated the link up - I gave you 2 posts and then there was Rosie the cat, Rosie the donkey and Rosie the child and her day old chicks!

So over to you now.  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. 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 but can I remind people of a couple of the "rules":


  • Please can you comment on at least 2 other blogs linked up - that is, after all the whole purpose of joining a linky to find and comment on more blogs and hopefully drive traffic back to your blog.
  • Please can you include my badge (preferably) or a link back to this blog.
  • Can I remind people not to add sponsored posts or paid-for reviews.  Eco-Gites of Lenault has no advertising on it and I am not comfortable promoting products or companies I know nothing about.

  1. Glad Coco hasn't tried escaping again. She must have been very keen.

  6. My, the joy of keeping pigs where you want them; I didn't know they could be such hardwork. Let's up she doesn't run off again and that your fence is strong enough to stop her just in case :-)

    Thanks for your lovely linky.

  7. I love all your pigs names! We use electric fencing for the pigs, they won't go near it. half the time it is turned off but they've yet to figure that out!

    1. I have heard electric fencing only works if you start them with it when they are young but if she persists we may have to give it a go.

I love receiving comments and I do read every one but if you are simply here to spam me with a link, guess what ... I won't publish it.
