Freezing and thawing in a garden/livestock environment will eventually break any mortar joints. You would do yourself a favor by dry stacking them-no mortar. If they fall over as a result of freezing you can always restack them. If you want to change their configuration, having no mortar will allow it. If you want a more solid wall, fill with soil/sand/dirt, maybe some lumber as posts stuck through them.
4 stacks of blocks 3 or 4 high with lumber/plywood on top makes a fine worktable.
2 high with a wide board makes a fine bench.
