    Santa's Reindeer

    According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year (which are the only members of the deer family, Cervidae, to have females do so), Male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to mid-December.

    Female reindeer retain their antlers till after they give birth in the spring.

    Therefore, according to every historical rendition depicting Santa's reindeer, every single one of them, from Rudolf
    to Blitzen........had to be a female.

    We should have known this when they were able to find their way.

    Or alternatively they may have been castrated which disrupts the seasonal dropping of the antlers.
