Monsters, stalking through the night,
Halloween is the Night of Fright.
Fear is what this night brings,
Along with many other things.

Are you sure you are prepared?
Tonight is not for the easily scared.
Creatures from hell roam on this night,

Trick or treat you say,
You should not have waited until the end of the day.
Tonight you will lose your tricks and treats,
For the monsters need to eat.

Amaretto Ranch Breedables is no different and we are getting ready for Halloween! We like a little fright and have some scary monsters just to honor this night!
That’s right guys the time is here to let the nightmare begin with these scary 2016 Halloween Edition animals!

The Bird Sanctuary will reward you with the Henny Penny for age and traits.
You can spend these Henny Penny rewards at any vendors located at the Amaretto Birds Stores an also on the Barnyard Bird Vendors on the Amaretto Haven Sim.

So be sure this is what you want to do when sending Amaretto Breedables to Haven, Paradise or Sanctuary because there is no turning back after sending them!

Bundle Updater Fix!

No Gravatar

Hello Amaretto Community and Happy Wednesday! How is everyone liking the new 5.5 update? I hope you all are getting excited as the new surprises start to reveal themselves on the grid!! Now on to an issue that we are aware of with all regular horses that have the saddle and wing trait. These horses may have a white, non-textured horn sculpt attached to a horse that does not have a horn showing in the stats. We are releasing a new bundle updater to help eliminate this issue. All you need to do is head on down to any of the Amaretto Ranch Breedables Horse store locations and pick up the new Bundle Updater box. The Bundle Updater box will say FIX on it. All you need to do when you receive a bundle that is a regular horse model with the wing and saddle trait together, is update it using the Bundle Updater Fix. This will eliminate the white, non-textured horn sculpt from showing up on that bundle once birthed. You can then birth the bundle and have no further issues with it showing the white, non-textured horn sculpt. This will also eliminate the need to file a support ticket once the bundle is birthed and has the extra white, non-textured horn sculpt. I am including somethings you need to know about the updater:

1. You can update up to 15 bundles at one time

2. The bundles have to be in range of the updater (5m radius)

3. Bundles must have “SUCCESSFULL_BUNDLE” in the UUID to be updated

4. There is an option to turn on/off range indicator on the updater (must have particles enabled on your sl viewer)

5. Can only update a bundle once and will only update 2.4 and higher bundles

Updater instructions:

Rez the updater out and select “range on” from the updater menu. Place up to 15 bundles within the range area of the updater and select “update” from the menu. ***DO NOT PICK UP BUNDLES OR THE UPDATER UNTIL IT HAS COMPLETED THE UPDATE PROCESS***. When the updater reads “Done” you may then pick up your updated bundles and repeat to update more bundles.


Happy bundle updating and breeding!

Until next time……

The New Forever Foal Consumable!

No Gravatar

Hello Amaretto community and Happy Saturday! Today I want to introduce to you to the new Forever Foal! How is it new you ask?? The Forever Foal is now a consumable!! You no longer have to send in your horse to be turned in to a Forever Foal! (If you have older version Forever Foal certificates you can still redeem them by following the instructions and sending them to Jaymee Caproni)

If you don’t know about the Forever Foal, let me fill you in… the Forever Foal is a great consumable that takes any retired horse and turns them into a pet forever! Meaning you will never have to worry about feeding your horse as after becoming a “Forever Foal” it no longer requires any food. A “Forever Foal” horse will look and function just like any other Amaretto Ranch Breedable horse. This only works for horses over 120 days old (retired). You can pick this consumable up at any Amaretto Ranch Horse store! Let me take a moment to go over how to use the Forever Foal consumable!


1. Open boxed Forever Foal and rez next to the horse you wish to become a pet.

2. Click the horse and go to the consumables option on the menu.

3. Find Forever Foal from the options on the menu and click it.

Once the horse’s stats have been updated the Forever Foal consumable will disappear.


*Only works for Retired Horses (Retired= 120 plus days old) and can be used for both male and female Retired Horses*

*Makes a Retired Horse so that it will not require food any more. All other normal functions for a Retired Horse will still operate normally*

*Hover text will say Pet instead of Retired *


Happy updating and Forever Foaling!

Until next time….


It’s here! 5.5!!!!!

No Gravatar

Hello everyone and Happy Friday! Guess what time it is? It is update time!!! That’s right… Amaretto Update version 5.5 is now out! I will take a moment to cover what additions and fixes were included in this awesome update! For information about how to update please see Dakota’s blog yesterday http://amarettobreedables.com/connection/?p=11898 where she covers all the important details of updating your Amaretto Ranch Breedables! Also, in the new update we have enclosed several Note Cards. These Note Cards have very IMPORTANT information on them. Remember you MUST purchase new starters to get the 5.5 Surprises!


I am going to review some of this information here for you.

Update v5.5 Fixes/Changes:


1.  Remove the “invisible horn” on all horse models

2.  Fixed sick textures when horse is healed

3.  Fixed Shetland riding animations

4.  Fixed Clydesdale ears when riding

5.  Fixed parent stats giving script errors

6.  Fixed multiple model errors


1.  Added the sick updater to the regular updaters, now all in one

2.  Added new Forever Foal consumable

3.  Added new saddle invisible option in menu

4.  Removed hues from saddles

5.  We have “Put Out to Pasture” (retired) the following Coats:
Mecklenburger – All Colors
Spotted Rocky Mountain – All Colors

6.  We have “Put Out to Pasture” (retired) the following Starter eyes:
Baby Blue
Light Green
Midnight Blue

7.  We have “Put Out to Pasture” (retired) the following Charmed Horses:
Charmed Inferno Demon
Charmed Artic Demon

8. We have “Put Out to Pasture” (retired) the following Brands:
Skull Branding
Cherry Branding
Ladybug Branding
Lightning Bolt Branding
Scorpion Branding

9. We have “Put Out to Pasture” (retired) the following Other Traits:

10. We have “Put Out to Pasture” (retired) the following Mane and Tail:
Braided Mane
Braided Tail

**  PLEASE NOTE** “Put Out to Pasture” (retired) means these will no longer be birthed from starter horses; they can ONLY be birthed from existing horses already on the grid that carry these traits.

Something’s you need to know about the updater:


1. It will not work if there is more than one updater out. It gives you a message that there are 2 updaters out please remove one. If you continue to try and update your horse it will give you another error message and have you pick one updater up and reset the other. (Touch and wait 5 seconds to reset)

2. It will not update pregnant horses. The reason being the updater can potentially abort the pregnancy. Waiting to update your pregnant horses will not affect the horse’s functions, they will continue to eat, move, animate etc. When they give birth to the bundle, then you can update them. The bundle will be the old version and need to be updated when birthed.

3. The updater will not work on sims with a high load. Dilation needs to be above .65 and region fps must be above 25 for the updater to work. You will get an error message that says the sim dilation is too low, we have enclosed a sim monitor that will display these values for you. Just rez on your sim next to the updater.

Update Instructions:

Single Updater: Place the updater near the horse that isn’t updated and click the horse and click the update button. The horse will be updated and the settings will be the same as before the update process. ***DO NOT PICK UP HORSES OR THE UPDATER UNTIL IT HAS COMPLETED THE UPDATE PROCESS***

Bulk Updater: Place the bulk updater in the middle of your horse breeding area, click the updater and adjust the settings you want your horses to be set to after the update process, then click the update horse’s button on the updater menu. This updater has the ability to update all horses that are not v5.5 in an entire region. However, depending on sim performance it may only do the horses in a 96 meter radius. Do not remove the updater until it has completed updating all horses and the hover text above the updater reads FINISHED. ***DO NOT PICK UP HORSES OR THE UPDATER UNTIL IT HAS COMPLETED THE UPDATE PROCESS***

Updaters can also be found at all of the Amaretto store locations:


Happy updating everyone remember if you have an issue please file a ticket and we will get you sorted!
