Reindeer have a hard time all winter and spring as the ground is covered by ice and snow. The spend their time looking for any patches of non-covered ground so they can find any bit of food without the need to break the thick ice.

Les rennes ont la vie dure en hiver et durant le printemps, car le sol est couvert de glace et de neige. Ils cherchent le moindre espace où le sol est apparent pour ne pas avoir à casser l'épaisse glace qui le recouvre partout ailleurs.
