Snowball (Born 4/27/16) is the most affectionate of our male reindeer. He loves being touched and talked to. He is naturally curious and constantly getting into things. He is always there to "help" when you are trying to get things done! Snowball also loves to give people kisses if they get close enough. Snowball is currently the breeding bull in our herd and is father to Sugar Plum (2018) and Griswold (2019) During breeding season he becomes very protective of Mistletoe and will sometimes grunt at you if you get too close.
Mistletoe (Born 5/1/16) It appears that Mistletoe thinks she is a HUMAN. She likes people better than the other reindeer and can have a bit of an attitude. She broke off one of Kringle's antlers in the fall of 2017 because she got mad about him getting into her pen! Her mate is Snowball and she is mother to Sugar Plum and Griswold. She is very petite and ladylike in her movements. She is very gentle with children and is the favorite reindeer for many visitors.
Kringle (Born 4/17/17) is the resident show off at our farm. He is LOVES attention and is always eager to get a treat. He is the only silver colored reindeer in the herd with bright white markings inside his ears, around his eyes, nose and feet. He sometimes irritates the other reindeer due to his abundant enthusiasm! Kringle is also the star character in the 2020 children's book titled REINDEER RUCKUSby Scott and Tracy Snowman.
Sugar Plum (Born 4/30/18) is the FIRST reindeer born at Snowman's Reindeer Farm. Born April 30, 2018. Owner, Scott Snowman, actually caught her when she was born right in the barn. She has been partially raised in the house due to mama, Mistletoe, not having any milk. Sugar Plum is spunky and sweet. Her favorite human is Farm owner Scott Snowman.
Griswold (Born 4/30/19) was born to Snowball and Mistletoe on April 30, 2019. Gizzy was "mom-raised" meaning that Mistletoe had milk and nursed him rather than being bottle fed by humans. He is a BIG boy, breaking previous farm records for weight, height and antler growth for a baby. His friendly, outgoing personality makes him a favorite with visitors. He is named after the Snowman's favorite character in their favorite Christmas movie: National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.
NEW in 2020: THREE REINDEER BABIES arrived via FedEx Cargo (Santa was too busy this time of year to drop them off) from Fairbanks, Alaska). Left to Right: Marshmallow (Born May 14, 2020), Kluger (Born 4/17/20), and Cocoa (Born 3/28/20) will establish a secondary herd at Snowman's Reindeer Farm. These babies will be a completely different blood line as our others and be generally larger in size. Marshmallow is the friendliest of the three, but all are curious and interested when visitors come to call.
Sparky (named for his personality and after Clark W. Griswold's nickname in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation) was born around lunch time on May 10, 2021 to Mistletoe and Snowball. He weighed 13.4 lbs, which was a new record for size born at our farm. He is, by far, the largest baby we have had and is growth has been astounding. With that growth has come a lot of energy and spunk. He is a lot of fun and very sweet. When you see him in 2021, he is going to look very lop-sided. On July 22, he broke his right antler completely off and due to the injury, it won't grow back until he drops his baby antlers and grows new ones in 2022.
Jingle & Jangle are mini donkeys and a great part of the farm family. They were born in 2017 and are half-sisters. They love attention and are very patient with children. Their sweetness and soft fur make them a favorite with little ones.
Snowman's Reindeer Farm is home to a variety of ducks, chickens and guineas who free range around the property. Although they are fun pets to have around, they actually carry out the most important job of anyone who lives at the farm. They PROTECT the reindeer by eating parasites. Ticks are the worst enemy/predator in our environment. Our birds help keep the tick population in check.
