CHRISTMAS has come early at Ponderosa with the arrival of a baby reindeer.

The male calf was born at the farm last month – and Ponderosa staff have invited readers to think up a name for him.

Lisa Bownes, from Ponderosa, said: “The baby is the first reindeer ever to be born at the farm. He is almost pure white, but with a grey stripe down his back. It’s quite rare. We have three female reindeer called Cloud, Storm and Lightning, and one male, called Thunder. Lightning is the calf’s mum, and Thunder is his dad.

“We are looking for a name to fit in with the others’ names, perhaps on a weather theme.”

Suggestions can be sent to info@ponderosa-centre.co.uk by June 29. There will be a prize for the winner.
