Reindeers visit Winter Garden shoppers

by: Amy Quesinberry Community Editor

Dancer and Prancer Jr. were oblivious to the shoppers, concentrating instead on their bucket of feed. 

Dancer is a 4-year-old reindeer; Prancer Jr. is her 6-month-old female fawn — and the two were on display Dec. 15 at the Winter Garden Village at Fowler Groves. They hung out under the clock tower, just down the sidewalk from their “boss,” Santa Claus. The mother and daughter are actually owned by Patrick and Diane Lavery, who have a farm in Ocala but brought the hoofed pair from Santa’s Hitchin’ Post, a farm in Gloversville, New York.
