About
For the ultimate draw to your event, hire us to bring one of our tame, trained exotic animals. Our American Plains Bison, Cody the Buffalo II has appeared in TV commercials & Shows, Corporate Conventions, Sporting Arenas, Weddings, Fundraisers - you name it. Cody the Buffalo II has performed for Taco John's, Buffalo Jean Company and RFD-TV. He is comfortable in confined spaces indoors or out.

Photo opportunities for your guests is a great way to have them return to your web site to download the pictures. Some our clients have charged for pictures using their customized frames or magnets. It's a great way to recoup your appearance investment.

You could also choose, Cajun Blue, a 2,000 pound, beautiful black & white foundation Texas Longhorn with 5' horns. We can offer photo opportunities in the saddle with Blue or standing beside. Blue was raised and trained specifically for the Ft. Worth Texas type appearances. In fact he was the Reserve Grand Champion at Ft. Worth Stock Show.

Our Appaloosa Miniature Horse, Pancho, is great for pint sized photo opportunities. Also, Cheyenne, his mother is an appaloosa mare and loves to travel with Pancho.

We have 2 darling Bethlehem Jenny's (The miniature donkeys with the Cross on their backs), Jessie and Lulabelle. They can dress up Western motif with packs or as Nativity donkeys.

We have a winter home in Alabama with land for our animals. Please check with us if you have an event in the Southeast during the winter and we could make those arrangements!!

CODY'S OLDE TOWN is located at The Money Creek Buffalo Ranch in Houston, Minnesota. There are many buildings that recreate the days of old such as a Barber Shop, Blacksmith Shop and Trappers Cabin and the entire town is available for retreats, tours, photo shoots & events.

As a side note: Cody the Buffalo I was trained by Mike Fogel for all the stunts in the movie 'Dances with Wolves', 'Radio Flyer', Energizer,
Our unique assortment of trained, tamed animals gives a client the chance to experience Hollywood type entertainment in the Mid West. Be sure to ask us about any new critters we have trained for entertaining or display.

We are the loving raisers, owners, trainers, handlers and keepers of these magnificent animals. They are our family. Their well being is our first concern and we always practice a high level of risk management when working with our clients. Not every animal is available for sitting on in every location. Please lets discuss the options that work best for you, your guests and our animals.

This was one of the greatest experiences of my life. My wife was thrilled with the surprise of animals at her birthday party. From planning to event day everything was professional, efficient and very accommodating. I would highly recommend anyone to use this service. I can't wait to find a time to go visit them at their ranch!

Thank You Adam! We were just delighted at Molly's reaction to our pets. Everyone at the party was so gracious to us, the way the gals squeeled with excitement when they saw the critters. We have name the piglet 'Molly'.

We are delighted that You were delighted. Having your President ride Cody the Buffalo in the very special 150th Anniversary Homecoming for Milligan College was the highlight of our year! All of your sports teams, alumni, club and volunteer students were able to have their pictures made with Cody the Buffalo, forever endearing him to your school and it's wonderful history. Thank YOU, Milligan College, for selecting us.

The petting ranch was a fabulous addition to our employee event. The kids and adults all enjoyed it. The staff did a wonderful job talking about the animals. You could see they love these animals and they are truly their pets. They were all well groomed and loved getting the attention of all that came to see them. I definitely recommend this company.

This was an absolutely WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. I highly recommend Cody to everyone. Everyone was wonderful. Cody was amazing. What a tame beautiful animal. He is so well taken care of. This is a once in a lifetime experience. They traveled over 300 miles to get to Chicago and how great it was. Our party was July 11th and there were some "loud booms" from fireworks and Cody didn't bat an eye. I highly recommend this to everyone, if you have chance...HAVE CODY THE BUFFALO AT YOUR NEXT PARTY!!!

Thanks Prusa Family! We had a great time with all of you and hope we didn't overstay our welcome! We were so impressed with all the interest in Cody and the respectful way your guests treated him (and us). We were so moved by the audience and send off we received, with everybody waving goodbye. We are Cody's biggest fans, but certainly are matched by your family and friends. We want to extend an open invitation for all to visit our Ranch and spend more time with Cody and his Ranch-buddies. Happy to have so many new friends!! Sincerely, Valerie, Mike & Cody P.S. Any pictures you might want to send to us for Cody's portfolio will be appreciated.

Our daughter had a wonderful time hosting her friends with her very own petting zoo at our house. Valerie and her crew went out of there way to make sure our daughter and her friends had a fun time with the animals and were even able to teach them a little about the animals that came. It was nice to have a little extra time before guests arrived to help prepare the animals for show time, and there is nothing like walking an llama around your yard (in the city). Very nice event enjoyed by all, highly recommend!!!!

Thank you Rolan and Amy - for trusting us with this important event for Madeline! I really enjoyed watching her interact with our handlers to learn how to braid and decorate the animals. These are memories (and learning points) that will last forever. Maybe Pony rides next year!

Cody the Buffalo was absolutely amazing for our event. It could not have went any better! Mike and Val were absolutely professional in every way. They even declined when I offered for them to put up their banner and hand out their business' information. My only concern was that the event went SO WELL that every event we put on following Cody will seem underwhelming. I'll be looking to bring them back often! We have been joking that the miniature horses will need counseling because Cody the Buffalo stole the show, but they were fabulous also! Cute and nice. If you're reading this and interested, pull the trigger. They exceeded all of our expectations!

Many thanks for the warm welcome and hospitality we received at Northbrook Church! We appreciate meeting and interacting with all of Cody's new fans. I must say, Matt, you are one of the most accommodating clients we have worked with and you made our camp out arrangements quite comfortable. Our minis did not feel left out at all because the really little kids had critters their size to pet and love on. Hope to see our new friends again! Thank you for trusting us to make your event successful.
