Falling Puppies???

Happy Fall everyone (well not officially) but it seems like a nice day to grab some hot cocoa and view some adorable fall puppies.

Amaretto has released four sets of Fall Special Editions K-9s and one retro edition. So let’s take a look at those.

From September 26, 2012 until October 15, 2012 these Special Edition Fall Fantasy K-9s were on sale at all Amaretto K-9 locations. They can be born with any of the available six different coat colors. The Special Edition Fall Fantasy K-9s also contain the beginnings of a brand new trait Paw Polish.

The coats on these Special Edition K-9s do NOT pass.

The eyes, collars and paw polish on these Special Edition K-9s DO have the ability to pass.

On October 1st, 2013 Amaretto released the 2013 Special Edition Fall K-9, they were available until October 8th, 2013. These k-9a have the ability to pass their eyes! The 2013 Special Edition Fall K-9 also held some hidden surprises.

The coats and collars on these 2013 Special Edition Fall K-9 do NOT pass.

The eyes on these 2013 Special Edition Fall K-9 DO have the ability to pass.

On October 3, 2014 Amaretto wanted to celebrate the changes of the season with a 2014 Special Edition Fall K-9. This Fall 2014 Special Edition – Hot Cocoa Schnauzer was sold at all Amaretto Store Locations. It was sold between October 3, 2014 and October 10, 2014 only!

Sadly the coats and collars did not have the ability to pass but the eyes did.

Starting September 12th 2015 until September 26th 2015 Amaretto sold Fall LE’s, SE’s, and CE’s! Any breeding of these 2015 Fall Special Edition K-9s gives a chance at getting the eyes, collar, and as well as the hidden surprises!

The coats on the 2015 Summer Special Edition K-9s DO NOT pass.

Starting November 10th until November 24th, 2017 Amaretto re-released the 2013 Special Edition Fall K-9,

These K-9s have the ability to pass their eyes! The 2017 Retro Special Edition Fall K-9 also held some hidden surprises.

The coats and collars on these 2017 Retro Special Edition Fall K-9 do NOT pass.

The eyes on these 2017 Retro Special Edition Fall K-9 Do have the ability to pass.

These new eyes on the Special Edition retros were different from the original 2013 Special Editions:

And of course right now we are probably all breeding the 2021 Kirin Fall Special Editions.

Let it Snow!!

Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we’ve no place to go
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Since snow has started to fall already, I thought this was a great time to take a look at some snowy horses, while we stay inside in front of our fireplaces.

2010 Harvest Edition Dapple Horses

It is Harvest Time at Amaretto and to celebrate the start of the Fall Holiday Season here in the USA any bundle that your horses drop from November 23, 2010 thru Fri November 26, 2010 at Midnight SLT has the chance to be a special Harvest Edition Coat!

In this set was the amazing Fresh Snow.

This coat did NOT have the ability to pass so finding one now is a little difficult but who knows maybe a collector out there is willing to sell so always be on the look out for this rare beauty. The other horses in this set were:

2016 Christmas Limited Edition

Now this was not a coat in this set but rather an eye that did pass. The 2016 Christmas Limited Edition – Winter Traveler is not only desired for the coat (which sadly DOES NOT pass) but for this amazing eye that did.

This eye would be perfect for any winter or snow related project and since it did pass, this shouldn’t be too difficult to find out there. You might even have one in your bag.

The other coats and eyes from this Limited Edition set were:

So why not start collecting and breeding with all of these eyes for the winter season.

2017 Christmas Edition

Amaretto was on a roll for snow eyes, following up the 2016 Winter Snow eye with a set of eyes the next year which could both pass.

Where did these great eyes come from. The 2017 Christmas Edition horses of course.

2018 Christmas Limited Edition

And for a third year in a row Amaretto gave us a snow related eye on the Limited Editions that could pass. This time with the 2018 Christmas Collectors Edition – Snowfall.

The coat did NOT pass but the fantastic Snowfall eye DID pass. This is another great eye for any snow related projects. The other horses in the 2018 Christmas Limited Edition set were:

Their eyes also had the ability to pass:

Snow Marwari

When the version 6.01 Horse update came out on Apr.27,2019 these exciting new coats were hidden in new starters. The Marwari are one set of many exciting possible Non-Starter coats that can come from breeding “Starter Horses”.

The one we are going to look at is the Snow Marwari.

This coat DOES have the ability to pass, which means it would be perfect with all the snow related traits that are out there. Don’t forget all the snowflake related traits (which might be a future connection since there are so many).

In case you are curious, here are the other Marwaris that you can breed:

So now that we are all cold and shivering seeing all this snow, let’s curl up by a fireplace and see what traits we want to breed. Have fun!!

Happy Breeding!!

Silver Lakenvelders

Amaretto likes to base some of their breeds on real animals. In this case they used the Lakenvelder chicken. Also known as “Shadow on a Sheet,” Lakenvelder chickens are as beautiful as they are useful. In Dutch, their name translates to ‘white spread over a black field;” with laken meaning sheet and veld meaning field. This is a wonderful description of these stunningly white birds accented by their black hackles and tails. They’re an attractive breed of chicken with blue legs, deep red eyes, and long flowing tails.

The breed is found only with a single, medium-sized comb that, for hens, stands uniquely erect. The history of Lakenvelder chickens is a bit clouded, but reveals an ancient lineage. The breed may have been developed in southern Holland, just over the German border. The Dutch painter Van Gink wrote that as far back as 1727, the breed could be found near the village of Lakervelt in the southeastern corner of Holland. The breed’s first appearance in poultry shows was in 1835 in West Hanover.

Lakenvelder chickens are noted for egg production; their porcelain white eggs being quite plentiful and nicely shaped. They are great foragers, very active, and vary wary. Their active and wary nature is not unlike that of the Leghorn chicken breed. Lakenvelders have delicious tasting meat, though they are not plentifully fleshed with males weighing 5 pounds and females 4 pounds. Lakenvelders are a non-broody breed of chicken.

On Dec.18,2015 Amaretto wanted to celebrate Christmas with some 2015 Holiday Edition Barnyard Birds.
These 2015 Holiday Edition Barnyard Birds have a chance at getting the eyes as well as hidden surprises from any breeding.

The hidden Surprises was the Silver Lakenvelder!!!


Didn’t they do a great job on the textures? And the great thing is, these coats can pass!! Happy Breeding, BOK BOK!

Gobble…Gobble!!

In 2017, Amaretto had a Random Drop for Thanksgiving, this could only drop for 24 hours on Thursday, November 23rd 2017. It was the amazing 2017 Thanksgiving Horn of Plenty, which was released for Horses, K-9s, Barnyard Birds and Ponie Pals.

All four of these were amazing so let’s take a look at them:

The coat/style/breed could not pass but the amazing eye could. And on the K-9s the collar also had the ability to pass. Here are the eyes that could pass:

And finally here is the collar that could pass from the K-9.

The coat/breed/style cannot be breed now but you might get lucky and find someone selling one someday. However you can get your hands of those eyes and collar and see what creations you can make.

Have fun everyone!!
