imageAn Idaho funeral home is renting out reindeer for holiday events.

The reindeer available for rent at the Cloverdale Funeral Home in Boise all answer to “Prancer.”

Manager Robert Boetticher Jr. says the previous owner first brought reindeer to the funeral home grounds, where they have been rented out for years during the holidays.

The funeral home now has six reindeer and a 12-year-old female named “Prancer” is the best-known, though she is now retired and no longer does events.

The Idaho Statesman reports three other reindeer have been trained to help pick up the holiday slack.

Boetticher says the three weren’t given names, so he calls them all “Prancer” after their popular predecessor.

Funeral Homes are Struggling to Keep Their Doors Open

Ryan Thogmartin - August 13, 2017

This is a topic and conversation that does not get talked about or covered enough. We all want to put the blame on cremation and ignore the fact that many of the issues facing funeral homes aren't because families choose cremation but because of bad business decisions of many funeral directors who don't want to change or accept cremation.
