Raikku is a mettlesome sleigh reindeer. He was born in the Kutuharju reindeer field research station in Inari. From there he moved to our herd as a yearling in the spring 2015.
Raikku is good sleigh reindeer and works well with travelers. He started to work, every now and then, already at the age of three years, because he was exceptionally massive and strong young male. And he was also of course trusting, easy going, and ready to work.
Raikku has a perfect character for his job. He is not spooky at all, and stays calm even when something unexpected happens. He can be trusted, he keeps his nerves in control in all situations. Raikku is also rather greedy and comes always to check if there is some treats available.
