Animal Tales - 52


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.  Please note I am now happy to allow sponsored posts, reviews and give-aways.

Farewell to piglets

This last week we bid farewell to 6 of Coco piglets.  Two have gone to be breeding boars, one as a pet to live alongside lots of of other pigs and 3 have gone to friends (pictured below).  That leaves us with 4 girls.  We will hope to sell one or two more but if not we are happy to keep all of these.

Favourite Animal Tales

Thank you to everyone who linked up with Animal Tales last week.  I really enjoyed the way FarmersWifeandMummy compared babies to dogs and also this sad posts from Lisa and Stella (but Stella is OK!).

Over to you now.  Please add your posts 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.
  • Pinterest - not a rule but for even greater exposure of your blog post please do join the Animal Tales Pinterest board and pin a picture from your linked posts.
  • Finally if you want to add a sponsored post, review or give-away, please do.

    1. Thank you - it is always a worry we are going to be left with too many.

    1. Aren't they just - they are a rare breed called Kune Kune originally from New Zealand.

  3. Hi Rosie, I'd probably have hidden all the piglets under the bed and refuse to part with them (which is probably why my husband doesn't want chickens as they'd end up as pets). At least you've found them good homes which must be a nice feeling.

    Thank you for hosting.

    1. It is always sad to see them go but nice to know they have gone to good homes. I got a lovely text from the owner of one saying his pig was so adorable! That one is living on an apple farm so will have such a great time come the autumn.

  4. They are still lovely. Glad they have all gone to good homes. Matthew now refuses to eat bacon, of any kind, because he has clicked that it actually comes from pigs and he is rather fond of them. I think he may be going vegetarian on me. Thanks for hosting! :)

    1. I believe I may have been responsible for turning a few children veggie over the years. When we were in the UK, friends were on holiday near my Mum's in the SW and we recommended they go to The Big Sheep. They had a great time but Dad came home with a veggie wife and 2 veggie daughters! One is still veggie 20 years on!

  5. do you get many responses from people wanting piglets? do you check them out first before re homing them?

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.
