We had visitors today! Three handsome reindeer came by to say hello after breakfast. They stayed for over an hour and in the end I had to chase them away as they came a bit too close for safety. The reindeer are odd animals, sometimes they are shy and run away as soon as we look at them, and sometimes they seek our company by following us around on the property. Right now they seem mostly curious about the dogs but since they are unpredictable and their antlers are dangerous we try to keep them at bay. After the morning’s excitement we went down to the river to cool down. It is true what they say – every day in Lapland holds at least one small adventure
A young bull?
The river runs peacefully at the edge of our property. The water is always ice cold.
Both Hilary and Wilder love to get wet!
Wish I could have let them swim and play off leash, but it isn’t safe when the reindeer are around.
