Kelokka

Calm and friendly sleigh reindeer. Likes to hang around people. Pretty boy. 

Description

Kelokka is a calm and quiet young sleigh reindeer, and has started his career recently. Kelokka has a friendly character, and he likes to hang around near people.

There is a personal trait behind Kelokka’s name. Reindeer grow new antlers annually. During the summer, the antlers are covered by skin. Later in the autumn, reindeer rubs the antlers against something hard such as trees to get the skin off. Castrated males, like Kelokka, usually do this a bit later than the breeding males and females do. Kelokka is an exception. He usually scrubs the skin off from his antlers earlier than others. That’s the origin of his name. In Finnish language, the word meaning reindeer scrubbing the skin off from the antlers is “keloa”.
