Yes the hand reared reindeer are alive, strong and gorgeous. They now take on the role of looking after other young on site. Nuzzling up to the pygmy goats and calming the newly weaned incredibly small Falabella foal.
Despite the pretty poor weather guests continue to enjoy the site – chatting in the hot tub after long days in the workshop, walking the woods or snuggled by the many wood burning stoves with wine in hand. The animals have certainly contributed to events – permitting guests to move them, count them, separate them and photograph them.
