Emeritus moved to our herd from the southern edge of the Finnish reindeer herding area, as the age of three. He had tried a career as a race reindeer but not with success. He had chosen jogging instead of running any faster. So he entered to our sleigh school looking for a new career as a sleigh reindeer.
Emeritus is a massive and quiet reindeer who generally takes things calmly. After settled in our team, Emeritus learned easily to pull a sleigh. Wearing harness was the only thing he did not like, so he needed another year in school.
Emeritus is very tamed and relaxed guy who is willing to say hello to anyone coming to meet him. Especially willing he is, if the coming person is bringing him some lichen. Emeritus is a greedy boy. There is a simple way to Emeritus’ heart: it is through his stomach.
