Priimus was born in the Kutuharju reindeer field research station in Inari, from where he moved to our herd as a yearling in the spring 2015. Priimus is brave and calm, but not very sociable with people. He rather hangs around with his reindeer mates.
Priimus got his name in his first winter as a preschool student in our Sleigh Reindeer School. He was the very best student in his class. Priimus is the Finnish word for the valedictorian.
Priimus is a massive young male, and has really handsome antlers. He has already started his career as a sleigh reindeer, and is doing a good job also there, as one can expect from the valedictorian. He is hard-working, reliable, good, and patient worker.
