Happy New Year and 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 Thursday night and showcases a wide range of animal related posts.
Piglet EscapeThe piglets are now 8 weeks old and have been weaned from Coco. She is enjoying a bit of time on her own with extra rations as she has lost some weight feeding 10 hungry mouths. Yesterday we let the piglets out into the field for the first time on their own, planning only to leave them out for an hour or so when, in fact, we got tied up with launching our new website and changing email addresses so it was dark when we came to put them to bed. I was a bit worried we'd struggle to find them in the dark, but I need not have worried. They had somehow managed a great escape and headed back into the barn ... only to detour to the store of sugar beet I have for their feed. Those 10 naughty piglets went to bed with very full tunnies last night!
I am not sure if I am more cross with the fact they escaped and went to the store or pleased with their ingenuity in getting (almost) home as darkness fell. What do you think?

Full details of the linky can be found here but can I remind people of a couple of the "rules":
