Born in April 2017, Silas still has a little growing to do, and is absolutely lovable AND huggable! He is quickly stealing the hearts of all the critter crew members — much to the consternation of Mini Cooper (mini horse) since he was the previous favorite!
Silas hit the ground running on the Cowboy Critter team. The day after he was hired, he was at his first TV news station! The very next week, he attended a ManaPro commercial set, and the following weekend was in Manchester, Missouri, for his first Live Nativity! Silas also loves the attention…erm…treats that come as a perk for working at Cowboy Critters Petting Zoo!
Silas is a Miniature Zebu calf. He is smaller than our sheep at the moment, but will probably pass them in height by the spring. When full grown, Silas will be much smaller than other cattle breeds. He will not be considered full grown for another 2 – 2.5 years, and will stand less than 42” at the shoulder.
The Miniature Zebu breed is known for being exceptionally docile and easy to handle. Silas is no different. He has quickly acclimated to life here with the petting zoo, and has already made friends with many of the other petting zoo critters!
Probably the best way to really meet Silas is to bring him to your event!
Silas is traveling with our indoor live nativity this year, and has already attended several birthday parties as a member of the petting zoo! If you want to meet him in the St. Louis area, he will be at the Journey to Bethlehem in Columbia, IL Dec 8th – 10th!
If you haven’t attended a petting zoo with Silas yet…you’ve missed out on meeting one of the cutest animals alive!
Flying Diamond Morgan’s Prince was born in 2011 near Springfield, MO, and joined the Cowboy Critters team summer of 2017. He has been giving pony rides in St. Louis and St. Peters since 2014, and the children love his puppy-like personality.
Because Prince has a brilliant white color (when he isn’t rolling in mud that is) he makes the perfect candidate for unicorn and My Little Pony parties! Prince loves the extra attention and awesome look that he gets for each party! We travel anywhere to give pony rides in the greater St. Louis area, and even into Illinois. So, please ask for Prince if you want to host the perfect My Little Pony ride party!
Rainbow Dash is by far Prince’s most popular alter-ego, but he is plenty happy to come dressed as Apple Jack, Rarity, Shutter Fly, or ever Twilight Sparkle! As Prince’s make up artists, we need some time to make sure that we have all the right colors, so please don’t hesitate to call now if you want to host a unicorn or My Little Pony ride party in the St. Louis area (add $50 for dye costs).

As you can see, Prince loves attention. While we have only done unicorns, My Little Pony and spartan warrior, we are happy to look into other ideas if we have enough time to gather supplies. Our goal here is to make dreams come true, so please don’t hesitate to ask!
