25. Reindeer

A reindeer is a half wild domestic animal from the arctic area that is very respected in the Elves Village. In the village there is a large enclosure where the reindeer graze and they can be fetched quickly when needed for transporting goods or elves to faraway destinations. The reindeer in the Elves Village have antlers that grow very quickly, up to two centimeters a day. Because of this they are used for making a lot of everyday objects from porridge ladles to lamps and earrings. All the elves take part in taking care of the reindeer but the Forest Elf Veli especially enjoys their company.
