A Reindeer Looking For A Salt Lick

I visited the Reindeer Herders of Northern Mongolia where the Reindeer were very friendly. They are often given salt to make up for a lack of it in their diet. They like to lick hands for the salt too. You can also see the tepees where the herders live in the background
