Santa's Reindeer

By now I suppose most of us know that Santa's reindeer are either female or don't have antlers.

Think about it. Most of the reindeer names could fit a female except for Cupid and Rudolph.

The reindeer have antlers on most, if not all, of the pictures I've seen. Actually, don't ever remember seeing them without. In fact, I'm pretty sure that they all had antlers on Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.

I think this one's female, even though she has antlers.

Santa's Reindeer

Female reindeer keep their antlers during the winter. Males usually lose them in the summer. So Santa's probably are girls!

Olive!

Olive is too cute!
I reckon, given the fact that Santa's reindeer ain't the average run of the mill reindeer (after all, they can fly on Christmas Eve), I ain't got any trouble believing that male and female keep their antlers all year.
'Course, I certainly ain't no expert.

The females would stop and ask for directions if they got lost...
