    Interesting mate...we mustered them using Bell 47s in northern Alaska back in the early 80s......very hardy breed of animal,just like caribou,lean,no fat....very fast......once penned they needed to be hooded to keep them manageable...unbelievable the temperatures they can survive in

    They should be introduced here. What if Santa gets a 'flat' and needs a replacement?
