Reindeer Antlers!

DSC04442Handsome Viima is busy growing his rack (all of this progress has been since mid-April). It will be a beautiful one and will stay “in velvet” until the fall when he will rub off all the velvet to reveal the hard antler beneath! His winter coat is coming off gradually, and soon he will have a shimmering summer coat to proudly display.
