RUXLEY REINDEER

Our Ruxley Reindeer will be returning this year during Father Christmas’ arrival on the 11th November 2017 and will be staying with us until 2pm on Christmas Eve.

Bracken, Bramble, Lightning and friends will be in store throughout the festive period for you to come and meet. Their morning and evening feeding times will vary so please pop along and look at the information around them just past our Christmas Market Chalets to find about the day’s feeding time!

Our first calf to be born was Bolt, in May 2010. Bracken and Bramble then had their second calf, Blossom, born in April 2012, followed by Bluebell in April 2013. To ensure that we maintained a clean blood line we then bought another female reindeer, Lightning, who was born in May 2011 and joined the Ruxley family in early 2012. Then, in 2014 we had a bumper year with Bracken and Lightning giving us Thunder, who was born in April, followed four days later with Bracken and Bramble’s offspring, Sky. Very sadly our dominant male, Bracken, passed away in 2014.

However, you will be able to see all of our six lovely reindeer this Christmas, as we rotate them on display. Make sure you come and say ‘hello’, they are located at the back of the Christmas Market.
