Christmas has come early at a South Yorkshire farm which has welcomed the newest recruit to Santa's sleigh team with the arrival of its first every baby reindeer.

Mum Dancer gave birth to the baby bull last week at Cannon Hall Farm much to the delight of everyone who works there.

It is the first reindeer we have ever had born at the farm and it was a truly magical moment.

Farmer Rob said Dancer, who is the only female reindeer at the farm, is a natural mum and both her and the baby are doing well.

But Santa's newest trainee does not currently have a name.

Farmer Rob added: "Dancer thankfully didn’t need any help from us at all - but the pressure is now on to find a suitable name for her son, who might one day end up pulling Santa’s sleigh too.”

Cannon Hall Farm is now open to the public in line with Covid-19 guidelines. All tickets have to be pre-booked in advance online.
