Saving Purchase Info

I Need My Receipt?
Have you ever gone shopping, lost an item, or gotten the wrong thing, or even had your new item be broken? What’s the first thing the store asks for? Do you have your receipt? They need the record of your purchase, what it was, and the date and price paid. Well, when you file a ticket with Amaretto, they need the same thing. In this case it would be called the transaction history. You can find it by going to your transaction history page on your SL account and checking the date of the purchase, then copy/paste that info to the ticket.

Now, the issue of how long SL keeps transaction history. For basic acounts it is 30 days, for premium accounts, 3 months. what to do what to do? You can download the information to a spreadsheet each month, or copy/paste important purchase info to a notecard inworld. When buying food in bulk, or LEs/DEs/SEs/CEs that you are saving for later birth for instance, make a copy of the purchase from your transaction page, just in case something drastic happens later on. It can even be for something you bought from auction or a breeder inworld. This is what it would look like:

This kind of information can really help when filing a ticket after the 30 days have passed, because it’s always a good thing to have a record of purchases you can always access. So save those receipts, and Happy Breeding!

HORSES

The Limited Editions for the horses coat did NOT pass but the Dreamer eye does.

The horses had a chance of dropping the amazing Glitter Gold Wing:

K-9s

The K-9s could not be left out of this so Amaretto released the Special Edition Stride Towards Freedom K-9s, their collar and eyes DID have the ability to pass.

What did they pass? None other than the Gold Glitter Dipped Ear.

PONIE PALS

Next we have the ponie pals, with the Stride Towards Freedom Deluxe Editions:

The style did NOT have the ability to pass, however the Dreamer eyes did. You could also get a very special surprise from them which was the Gold Glitter Wing.

DUCKS

And last but not least, we have our duck friends. They had to be featured in their own Collector’s Editions.

So why not get out there today and breed some of these great Glitter Gold traits.

Craving some tiny Beauty?

If you are step right up and take a look at some beautiful Craved Ponies. Today we will specifically be taking a look at the Craved Rose Ponies that you were able to breed for in February 2020.

All you had to do to get these was breed some Redie Fabulous!, Umber Bandits, or Star Goldens together during the month. If you sprinkled them with a little bit of luck you received one of these (if not all three):

These little amazing Ponies could pass their coats!!

Check out the Galaxy!!

Hello everyone hope you are having an awesome Saturday and that your weekend is off to an amazing start! Today the spotlight is shining on the amazing Galaxy Eyes & Horses! 

First let’s take a look at these eyes!  The Galaxy Eyes are one set of many exciting possible Non-Starter eyes that can come from breeding Starter Coats.

On October 7, 2016 Amaretto release horse update version 5.5 and released new starters with hidden galaxy eyes Uranus Galaxy, Neptune Galaxy and Venus Galaxy.

 

 

You can have a chance at one of these exciting Non-Starter Galaxy Eyes by breeding any horse with a starter horse or by breeding together two starter horses. These eyes CAN be passed on. For a closer look at any of these eyes check them out on the wiki at https://horse.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=Galaxy_Eyes

Now let’s take a look at what you can get by breeding these eyes together!

Amaretto celebrated our 2nd Birthday on September 1, 2012 and to honor this occasion the Galaxy horses were revealed!  The Galaxy Horses can be randomly birthed by breeding together any two horses that have Galaxy Eyes.

Amaretto celebrated our 8th Birthday on September 1, 2018 and to honor this occasion 5 Galaxy horses were revealed Uranus, Mercury, Neptune, Sun, and Venus!

 

 

Galaxy Horses can NOT pass their coat.  However breeding a Galaxy Horse with another Galaxy Horse or with any other horse with Galaxy Eyes you will slightly increase your chance for another Galaxy Horse.

For a closer look at any of these beauties check them out on the wiki at https://horse.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=Galaxy_Horses

So why not start breeding for your chance at one of these awesome horses today!

Until next time this is Snookie hoping you have a wonderful weekend and a great week ahead!

HAPPY BREEDING!!

 

A Horse of a Different Color

Palomino is a genetic color in horses, consisting of a gold coat and white mane and tail; the degree of whiteness can vary from bright white to yellow. Genetically, the palomino color is created by a single allele of a dilution gene called the cream gene working on a “red” base coat.

Palomino horses have a yellow or gold coat, with a white or light cream mane and tail. The shades of the body coat color range from cream to a dark gold. Unless also affected by other, unrelated genes, palominos have dark skin and brown eyes, though some may be born with pinkish skin that darkens with age. Some have slightly lighter brown or amber eyes.
In the United States, some palomino horses are classified as a color breed. However, unlike the Appaloosa or the Friesian, which are distinct breeds that also happen to have a unique color preference, Palomino color breed registries often accept a wide range of breed or type if the animals are properly golden-colored. The Palomino cannot be a true horse breed, however, because palomino color is an incomplete dominant gene and does not breed “true”. A palomino crossed with a palomino may result in a palomino about 50% of the time, but could also produce a chestnut (25% probability) or a cremello (25% probability). Thus, palomino is simply a partially expressed color allele and not a set of characteristics that make up a “breed.”

Waaaay back in the dawn of time when Amaretto started, they had starters called Palominos. They were primitive horses, who could barely use tools, and had no knowledge of traits or racing free on the range. They were the creme, the golden, the silver and the shy tan.

Eventually, they acquired traits but still worried about their looks.

One day the 2.0 update appeared as if by magic, and Lo! they changed their appearance. Their legs became slender and graceful, and their colors became truer.

Today the palomino coat is retired after a long life of hard work and breeding. Luckily for breeders, they can still be bred from existing lines and have been used to create some interesting horses, like the Twist horse, the Pintomino which came from breeding any color Pinto to any color Palomino.

My personal favorite color of Palomino is the gold, which always reminds me of Roy Rogers and Trigger. I like to try and duplicate him by adding coat and hair gleam to the gold Palomino coat, with long/long traits.

What is YOUR favorite Palomino?

NATIONAL MILK DAY

National Milk Day on January 11th commemorates the day many think the first milk deliveries in glass bottles began in the United States. Alexander Campbell of the New York Dairy Company professed to the New York State Senate that his company was the first to make these deliveries in 1878. 

The United States and Australia export more milk and milk products than any other country. Those products include cheese, yogurt, ice cream, butter, cream, powdered milk, and much more. Throughout the world, more than 6 billion people consume milk and the products we make from it. One of the reasons is because milk provides nutrients such as calcium, potassium, vitamin B12, and vitamin A.

During the Middle Ages, people called milk the virtuous white liquor because alcoholic beverages were more reliable than water. In 1863, French chemist and biologist Louis Pasteur made it possible for milk and other food and drinks to be stored for more extended periods. He developed a method of killing harmful bacteria that is now called pasteurization.

In 1884, an American doctor, Hervey Thatcher of New York City, developed the first modern glass milk bottle. He called it the “Thatcher’s Common Sense Milk Jar.” He used a waxed paper disk to seal the milk in the glass bottle. Later, in 1932, plastic-coated paper milk cartons were introduced commercially as a consequence of their invention by Victor W. Farris. 

Modern industrial processes use milk to produce casein, whey protein, lactose, condensed milk, powdered milk, and many other food-additive and industrial products. 

The females of all mammal species can, by definition, produce milk. However, cow milk dominates commercial production. In 2011. FAO estimates cows produced 85% of all milk worldwide. Apart from cattle, many kinds of livestock contribute milk used by humans for dairy products. These animals include buffalo, goat, sheep, camel, donkey, horse, reindeer, and yak. Like cattle, their milk produces cream, butter, yogurt, kefir, ice cream, and cheese, too.

The ultimate way to celebrate is with a large glass of milk. However, a serving of anything made with milk would count, too! Does a milkshake sound good to you?

Static Electricity??

Oh no! We all know what a painful experience static electricity can be. And these ponies are full of build up electricity ready to strike.

In June 2019, Amaretto gave us these little sparks of energy for the monthly breeding. All we had to do was breed together some  Painted Ivories or Star Coals together and then we had a chance at getting either the Craved Stormy Painted Ivory or the Craved Stormy Star Coal.

Some lucky breeders were able to get both!!

The coats did have the ability to pass.

Then on July 1, 2020 at 12:01 AM until July 31, 2020 we had the chance to breed these little balls of electricity together to get a Coveted Circlet – Water Ponie.

This coat did NOT have the ability to pass.

However, the eyes and the crowns did.

So why not have fun and add some of these electrifying traits to your Ponies today!!

Are You Bored?

There is so much to do in SL, how can you be bored? Seriously, what do you do when you have too much time on your hands? Clean your room? NO! Clean your inventory! Check out your Amaretto breedables. Do you have a folder full of anonymous Amaretto Breedable Bundles? Kennels, nests and baskets with no name on them and you feel overwhelmed? Take 15 minutes (or an hour if you feel ambitious) each day to do a little organizing and rename them. Pull some out to check out the traits on them, you may be surprised at what you’ve forgotten you had. I heard one breeder do that and she found a Charmed she didn’t even remember her horse dropped! You could find that elusive eye you have been searching for everywhere, or even some traits OTHERS have been looking for to purchase!

Everyone has their own system for storage. I like to make a folder for each type of breedable, then folders for their drops, folders for each coat or special trait , maybe one for full siblings. Even if you only do a folder for the coat, it makes it a lot easier to find later on if Amaretto names that particular thing for a project. When naming try to use abbreviations you will recognize to include important information on each bundle/kennel/nest/basket, and the gender. This can also help if you plan on selling them, as it makes it easier for buyers to sort through a pile of bundles with names instead of Amaretto Breedable bundle, or even the anonymous -Bundle Ready DO NOT OPEN lol.

Another thing to consider is if you have tons of bundles sitting on the ground waiting to be named and picked up. That is robbing you of prims that could be filled with more lives waiting to breed! So take a little time each day to do some organizing, and while you’re at it, you might find some to box up and donate to AMOC’s next bundle hunt! Happy Sorting!!

PERIHELION DAY

Perihelion Day is on January 4 this year. It occurs about two weeks after every December Solstice, and on this day, Earth’s center is approximately 91,402,500 miles from the sun’s center. Numerical integration is required to make precise predictions of perihelion passage. It is quite interesting to see what goes on in the universe and the planet on which we live. Perihelion is one of those many interesting occurrences. On this day, we can keep a lookout for the big ball of fire being at its largest.

Perihelion is an astronomical occurrence that happens around two weeks from the December Solstice. Even though it is winter in the Northern Hemisphere during this period, Earth reaches the closest point of over 91 million miles to the sun on this day. Perihelion does not directly affect Earth’s temperature; it does not make us feel any warmer, nor does it provide respite from the chilling temperature. However, it does indirectly affect seasons because Earth’s orbital speed is at its maximum at perihelion. On this day, the sun appears the largest in the sky for the entire year, gradually growing smaller through the remainder of the year. 

In 1246, Perihelion Day was on the December Solstice. Every 58 years since then, the date has changed by a day. Perihelion Day varies each year due to precession and orbital factors that follow specific cyclical patterns known as the Milankovitch cycles. Another cause is the moon’s presence, which can make the date vary by up to two days from one year to another. While the Earth-Moon barycenter moves on a stable orbit around the sun, Earth’s center, which is around 2,900 mi from the barycenter, can shift in any direction from it, thus affecting the actual time of the perihelion. 

In 2000, the longitude of the perihelion was about 282.895°, and by 2010, it had become around 283.067°. According to astronomers, in the year 6430, the perihelion will happen simultaneously as the March Equinox.

Amaretto celebrated our 2nd Birthday on September 1, 2012 and to honor this occasion the Galaxy horses were revealed!

The Galaxy Horses can be randomly birthed by breeding together any two horses that have Galaxy Eyes.

Amaretto celebrated our 8th Birthday on September 1, 2018 and to honor this occasion 5 Galaxy horses were revealed Uranus, Mercury, Neptune, Sun, and Venus!

Galaxy Horses can NOT pass their coat.

However breeding a Galaxy Horse with another Galaxy Horse or with any other horse with Galaxy Eyes you will slightly increase your chance for another Galaxy Horse.
