R is for Reindeer

This is just a quick post today, since I'm super busy revising for an exam I have on Monday!

Some of you already know that my most favourite animal is the deer. I also really adore reindeer. I have a very happy memory of being woken up in the back of my boyfriend's car a couple of Christmas' ago, just in time to wind down the window and see a couple of reindeer walking through the snow at the side of the road! 

This was the few seconds I managed to film. I wanted to show you, since I think it's so lovely how they have bells around their necks!

I love this picture by Per Breiehagen. How I'd love to get that close to a real reindeer!

(Picture lovingly taken from here - please let me know if you know where the first picture came from, so I can give credit :)

Have you ever seen a reindeer?

  2. Reindeer are beautiful! Lovely post. :)

  3. They are known here in North America as Caribou, and I have seen them but only up close at Northwest Trek, a wildlife preserve in Washington State. They roam freely in the park, and you get to see them up close in the tram tour.

  4. oh how magical- thank you for posting these pictures

  5. oh wow, great post :) they are such lovely animals, there's just something magical about them!

  6. Reindeers make me want to sing carols!! Adorable creatures :)

    Well, goodluck on your exams lovely!xx

  7. Wow! That was so cool. Thank you and good luck with your exam on Monday. :)

  8. That is so cool! I would love to see a reindeer in person. I love animals. The one summer my husband and I traveled to Maine, we did not get a chance to see a moose. We were a little bummed. Guess that just means more traveling!

    Praying for you and the exam Monday!

  9. I had a friend in college whose parents kept some.

  10. I love reindeer. I remember the first time I got to see the in real life. It was magical.
