As another commentor said, it does look more like a pig than a reindeer. It needs a few touches. Like no little pointy ears, make the head rack bigger, and the face not as round. I think I can do that. I am going to play plastic surgeon to Rudolf

This idea is so good. I have a country kitchen decorated with sheep, cows, chickens, pigs etc. I have looked in vain for cute ornaments to decorate a wreath and a small tree I use in there for decoration at Christmas. Your idea of a reindeer jumpstarted my own creative juices. I can make my own ornaments!!!! (and have the animals I want) by using your great idea. Thanks a million.

this reindeer looks more like a pig than a reindeer.
