What do we know about these beautiful and gracious animals animals that pull Santa´s sleigh and help deliver Christmas presents?
 
Probably everyone recalls a famous Rodolph from the catoon but what do we know about reindeer habits, environment where they live, food they eat, characters they have?

 We invite you to take a day trip to visit a private reindeer farm run by a family. The idea came to the owner, a former submariner  when he saw  a heard of reindeer  on Kola peninsular being taken along the road to a slaughterhouse. He felt so bad about it that could not but  purchased a couple of animals and brought them to the back yard of his house in Moscow region to live in.  He had to spend  a lot of time in Murmansk region to learn some tricks  from a local reindeer herder. Ever since his farm expanded from a couple of reindeer to a hear of about 17 and became a popular venue among Russians over New Year times.
Petting and feeding these gracious animals is absolutely unique experience both for kids and adults.
