There’s just something about ’em… Reindeer that is! – that enchant the minds of children and adults alike. From their cloven hooves and velvety soft noses, to the large rack of antlers upon their stout bodies. These animals are built for the harsh winter’s they would regularly endure in their native habitats. A select few reside at Reindeer Ridge in Guilford, Indiana. This small herd is living the highlife under the loving care of Christmas Cheryl and Reindeer Ron.
Cheryl and Ron started the hobby farm in 2017. Cheryl always wanted reindeer and Ron reluctantly agreed to getting two reindeer for their newly purchased farm. What Ron didn’t know though was that there is something magical about reindeer.. they can warm the hearts of anyone! Little did he know, those two.. grew to five reindeer on the farm. Two of which were born this year! Rudy and Dasher are their names and they are just adorable!!!
Unlike how Disney portrayed these creatures in the movie Frozen, reindeer do NOT have upper teeth and cannot eat carrots! Instead, the favorite treat shared amongst these guys at Reindeer Ridge are graham crackers!
My son’s Andrew and Marshall enjoyed feeding Comet and Rudy and petting their fuzzy noses!
After spending time learning about the reindeer, Christmas Cheryl lead us to a barn filled with locally made treasures for sale. While the parents shop, the kids can write a letter to Santa and mail it to the North Pole, sit upon Santa’s lap, make reindeer food, and take their picture in a sleigh!
I highly recommend that you visit Reindeer Ridge this holiday season! Cheryl, Ron and the reindeer are absolutely wonderful and a real treat to be in their company! Even though I had only the pleasure of visiting with them for a short while, I left feeling like I had visited lifelong friends!
