It is the time of year when all the reindeer herding families goes to the mountains. They have used weeks collecting the herds and preparing. The calves born in May will now gets its owner mark. In the enclosure the calf follow the mother reindeer. This makes it easy to spot the ownership of the calf, and the owner can mark it. The mark is a combination of cuts made in the calf’s ears. Each owner has his special mark. I went to the mountains to visit last night, but I have just organized a few pictures yet.
If you think the reindeers looks a bit fluffy, your are right. They are shedding their winter coats. And growing new anthlers. Some more pictures on this link.
