Last Saturday, our closest friends invited us to join them in a socially-distanced visit to the Cotswold Reindeer Herd. It’s not a huge setup, but it was worth an hour or so of our time. All the reindeer are penned, but visitors are allowed to feed them delicious lichen and pat them.
I was expecting their fur to be a little on the rough side; in reality, it’s beautifully soft. Their antlers feel velvety when stroked. 🙂
The only drawback was that dogs are not allowed on site, which meant that we had to split staying outside with Tilly – The Brainy One took the first shift and my friend’s dog-obsessed son took the second.
The reindeer are available to visit until New Year’s Eve, booking advisable due to limited numbers.
