Husband’s parents came to visit us this weekend. Whilst they were here we went into town to see the sights. When we went down to the market place we noticed an unusually large amount of people, and discovered there was some variety of happening going on. I’m still not sure what the happening was, but apparently it involved reindeer. There appeared to be some sort of racing going on with them.
Of course I had to get some photos of the reindeer. This was the most impressive one – the others were all minus antlers. As you can see in the first picture, the reindeer was losing the velvet from its antlers.
I really wouldn’t want to get on the wrong side of those antlers! As gentle as this reindeer looks as it eats its dinner and watches the camera warily, I know they can be dangerous if threatened. Those antlers are strong, sharp, and definitely not something you want coming in your direction!
