Special Thanks to Kari & Hans for being so helpful to allow Jingle Belle to be part of Santa's Reindeer Company!

Jingle Belle's Background

Jingle Belle's Mom is "Anna" a 4 year old cow that came to Leavenworth Reindeer Farm from Palmer, Alaska. Right up there in North Pole Country!

Her Dad is "Sven" a yearling bull that has a very impressive swagger to his early size and antler stature.

Anna went into labor June 13th and paced continuously all day and into the night. She delivered at 3:45am a beautiful 14 pound 7 ounce female reindeer that has quite dark hair. She has been nursing and frolicking around the nursery enclosure and already started to nibble at willow leaves and drink water from the water pail.

Additional Information

Jingle Belle‘s half sister Willow will be coming to live at the farm in September. The two girls are inseparable and Santa has figured out a way to keep them together and having fun at Santa’s Reindeer Company.

Jingle Belle will be growing up at the Leavenworth Reindeer Farm over the next 3 months. As she grows and learns how to play in the Reindeer Games - we will keep the website updated with new photos of her growing and playing with her Mom and the Reindeer.


We are planning on bringing "Jingle Belle & Willow home in mid to late October.


Summer 2018 ~

The Babies are growing so fast and at 2 months their antlers began to develop. They enjoy their summer days together as the run and jump and learn their "Reindeer Games". . . .


October 2018 ~ 

Jingle Belle & Willow are scheduled to come home to Santa's Reindeer Co. Farm on October 19th. Willow is weaned and ready, but Jingle Belle is a Momma's Girl and taking a little longer to wean. 


Both Girls are doing very well with their halter training, and we cannot show enough appreciation for all the extra effort Kari has put forth in preparing the two reindeer babies to ready for Santa.


"Jingle Belle" & “Willow” will be the stars of our Holiday Display Season, so be sure you make plans to visit Santa's Reindeer Company and say Hi to Santa's Newest Reindeer Team!
