I didn't know if posting this question is more appropriate on the equine, sheep, or catttle, or goat forums so I'll post here. I guess being the season also is appropriate to bring up the subject of raising or keeping Reindeer. I saw a piece on the CBC news of a Reindeer rancher in Sasketchewan that is going to Mongolia with semen samples to improve the genetics of the diminishing herds of Caribou over there. I always enjoy seeing films or pictures of caribou and have petted them live. The fellow in Saskatchewan was showing one of his 'pet' Reindeer that was well trained to pull a sleigh and walk around with a halter up and down steps on his house deck and so forth. He was quite attached to raising these animals and I coudl see why. Anybody here, especially from the Northland or Colder countries that raise reindeer for meat or other purposes? Here's a thought. Can you imagine a christmas tree farm and having Reindeer sleigh rides in the snow and gathering the tree, or ride on forested trails? I know....it's cold and I'm dreaming....guess the snowshoing will do for now.
