Hello Amaretto Community and happy Monday!  I hope everyone has an amazing week! I wanted to take this moment to remind everyone how to protect yourself in Secondlife while breeding and selling your breedables.

A few things you can do to protect yourself and your breedables.

  • Don’t buy/sell breedables to avatars that are only one day old.
  • Always set prices of your breedables in your inventory or in a private area
  • When putting items out for auction be sure they are not set for sale before they are sold
  • Don’t buy breedables from random people messaging you.
  • Always check the creator of the horse, K-9 or Barnyard Bird. It should always without exception be JJ Cerna for horses, Ancient Biscuit for K-9s, Mazelina Menna for Barnyard Birds and PlayfulPonie Resident for the Ponie Pals.
  • NEVER I mean never buy a duplicated breedable or a breedables that you haven’t seen rezzed in Secondlife.

Amaretto cannot be there to help you at every breedable sale nor can we refund you if you buy a copybotted breedable or a duplicated breedable. You have to protect yourself against these people in Secondlife, if you do fall victim to one of these scams the best thing to do is file a abuse report them to Linden Lab.

There have been some issues with a griefer pretending to give out free stuff that if you wear it or give it debit permissions it will drain your Linden balance. I just wanted to give out a few tips about protecting yourself from these kinds of griefers and thieves.

1.) Always pay attention to who is giving you things. If you don’t know them don’t wear it… only rez it. If it asks you to give it debit permissions DECLINE IT!!!! Then delete it and purge it from your inventory.

2.) When dealing with Amaretto products they are no modify, no copy, no transfer. They can only be purchased from an Amaretto store and Marketplace or be given by one of the three Amaretto Business Avatars JJ Cerna, Ancient Biscuit, and Mazelina Menna. Any other avatar trying to give out Amaretto Products (other than animals of course) is a griefer or copybotter. Real Amaretto products will never ask for debt permissions!!!!

Also be sure to check out this blog by Josaphine on protecting yourself:

http://amarettobreedables.com/blogs/5/131/copybotters-again

Please be responsible and protect yourself.  But you guys have to be proactive and protect yourself against such scams and report all scammers to Linden Lab with an abuse report. Last but not least always remember that if something sounds too good to be true it probably is!

I hope this helps everyone protect themselves and their breedables from scams and thieves. I hope everyone has an amazing breedable week coming!

Until next time….

The Story of the Amarettobürger

No Gravatar

 …not so long ago, a friendly robot made his way to Amarettoville from the far reaches of the vast Second Life grid. 🚀

Landing in the Barnyard, he was greeted by the Birds who offered him food from their garden. He had never had food like this before. “Yummy!,” he exclaimed. He ate his fill and, with a full stomach, thanked the Birds and then set off to explore. He walked through the K9s and then followed the stone path to Club Amaretto. “What a great place for parties,” he noted. The robot liked to party!

Next, he wandered over to the Amaretto Ranch University. “Empowering through knowledge!”, he mused. From there, the sound of water crashing against the rocks beckoned him to the pier, where he tried his hand at some 7Seas fishing. Catch and release, of course! 🐟

Afterwards, while meandering through the courtyard, the red roof of the barn at the Amaretto Horse Ranch caught his eye. He was truly amazed at all the wondrous things in Amarettoville. But, it was not until he squeezed through the hollow log into Ponie Pals Land, that his metal heart was overcome.

Never had he seen anything so cute and adorable. Right then and there he declared himself to be the Ponie Pals guardian forever. Inconspicuously disguising himself as a tree, he knelt down in the forest and there he remains ever watchful.

So, now you know the story of how the Amarettobürger* (bürger is German for citizen, inhabitant or resident) came to Amarettoville!

Be sure to look for him whenever you visit the Ponie Pals sim. 😊

Until next time…HAPPY BREEDING!

P.s. He messaged his robot friends about the ponies and 3 more arrived to act as sentinels at mySLhorses!

Scam Alert!!!!

No Gravatar

Hello everyone hope has got to enjoy some sunshine this weekend!

I have recently been getting a lot of ims about 3rd party sales. Remember Amaretto will not be able to intervene in any after market sales because this is a transaction that takes place between two in world residents and does not involve Amaretto directly.

Why do I say this? Well I want everyone to know that you need to do your best to protect your self in the market.
Don’t pass horses until you receive full payment! I know we all want to help one another out but doing this just protects you in the long run.

Don’t pass horses for someone “to see” they can see it just as well with you as owner and the horse rezzed out in world.

If you are breeding with a partner or others make sure you keep your horses in your possession.

ScamAlert

The truth of the matter is that no one in SL can “steal” any no copy, no mod object, you have to pass it or set it for sale.

I would like to think we live in a world even virtually where people do the right thing but sadly this is not true for SL or RL. So please if you are not willing to take a loss of a breedable don’t pass or set for sale for anything less than the amount of linden you are willing to take.

To those avatars out there that do take advantage of Amaretto Community members DO NOT think that we are not aware of who you are and what you do. Please treat each other with respect and honesty that you would like to be treated with in any life.

Ok guess ill climb off my soap box now guys, I just am passionate about the Amaretto Community and don’t like it when people are doing things they should not do! This is Ava over and OUT! Peaceful breeding and selling everyone!

Breedable Spotlight

No Gravatar

Happy Thursday Everyone!  I’m back after a week’s vacation, rested and refreshed and excited for this week’s Breedable Spotlight.

This week I am going to share what is one of my favorite Horse projects, my matching blue babies!  I am one of those breeders who love to tackle the difficult task of getting matching traits on certain horses. This is not as easy as it may sound when you factor in traits that you want to exclude from those project horses.

The blue projects I’m working on now are for both my Black Walkers and White Walkers.  As many of you already discovered if you mix the Wild Hair Mystique Fuchsia and the Hair Hue Teal you get what has become known as “True Blue”.  It is a very lovely shade of blue that matches perfectly with the blue socks, blue bridle and the Patriot wing.  The true blue hair looks beautiful on both the white and black horses alike.  The eye that I have chosen for this project is the Abyss eye but there are a few other blue eyes available that also look very nice on this combination.

While I don’t consider my special projects to be designer horses, it is fun to sit and look through the Amaretto Horse wiki at all the different traits available and pick which ones you personally would like to see on a horse.  These projects can be challenging depending on what you decide to work on but I can promise you that it is so much fun to finally accomplish what you set out to do!

The best resource you can have for deciding what project you would like to tackle is of course the Amaretto wiki were you can find all the available traits and pictures of what each looks like.

http://wiki.amarettobreedables.com/index.php?title=List_of_Horse_Traits

 

Since I have not accomplished my blue baby project as of yet I am including a few pictures below and you just have to imagine what the finished project is going to look like!

Until next week, Happy Breeding!

Happy Saturday everyone! So… As you may know I have a Spring costume contest coming up on Thursday… and I have been getting all the decor and stuff together for it… so Spring is all I can think about! Well… let me tell you about this crazy dream I had last night!

So as I doze off into dreamland….

“Spring has sprung, spring is here… let it be said for all to hear….” The Garden court jester shouted as he ran through the courtyard of the kingdom. There had been whispers through the palace for days. The King and Queen were expecting twin babies this spring and the excitement of the birth was sweeping throughout the kingdom!

It was a warm spring day, the palace maid was out in the courtyard hanging clothes on the line, when she looked down and noticed a beautiful little flower blooming. It was no ordinary flower, with its leaves having a paw like appearance. There were no flower beds around the clothes line so she could not understand how this adorable bloom got there. She mumbled to herself as she gently gathered up the flower, “This is a sign, I shall bring this flower to the Queen for when her fluttering bundles of joy arrive.”

The very next day, the sounds of trumpets filled the air! Everyone gathered in the kingdom courtyard and awaited the news. Were the beautiful babies here? Have they arrived? Then, all of a sudden, all attention was focused on 2 beautiful bluebirds singing ever so sweetly above the gorgeous rose laced terrace. The King and Queen were gracefully making their way out. As they neared the edge, the crowd could see two majestic and delicate beauties quietly afloat next to the King and Queen. The crowd stared in awe at the gracefulness they saw before them.

The silence was suddenly broke when the courtyard maid comes stumbling toward the Royal terrace, “Your majesty! I have something… I have never seen this….” The guards quickly stop the maid, “Halt!!” The maid kneels down and lowers her head, speaking softly,” This flower, it is one I have never seen before. It has beautiful white petals… and the center… it is so unique… its leaves… paw like. Please your majesty, this is a gift sent for your beautiful foals.” The Queen looks down and smiles softly at the maid, she then glances up to the chirping bluebirds gracefully flying above her  “Would you two be so kind and gather this unique gift from the maid?” The two bluebirds flew down and picked up the daisy in their beaks and fluttered back to the queen. They placed the flower on the ledge of the terrace and began tweeting and singing a cheerful spring song. The Queen, King, their beautiful fluttering twins, and the two bluebirds were glowing as they looked down and smiled at this special daisy!

And then… I woke up…. I’m not sure of the significance… but they say all dreams mean something. Or do they….

Anyhow… Happy breeding!

Until next time….

K-9’s in the Spotlight

No Gravatar

Guess what time it is!?!?

It’s Thursday which means it’s time for another installment of my Breedable Spotlight!  For those of you not familiar with what that is, well it’s where I will use my blog to shine a spotlight on some of my favorite Amaretto Breedables!

This week I am going to show you one of my longest running, and still one of my most favorite K-9 projects.  My Bloody Dogs!  For a long time now it has been my mission to take the Wicked eye and Bloody Rockstar collar from the Crimson Bloodthirsty Beagle and put in on every other K-9 coat!

So far I have quite a collection.  My favorite and what started this whole project has to be the lil tiny Chihuahua.  They look like a big tough dog when they are sporting that Wicked Eye and Blood Rockstar collar.  I imagine their bark even sounds deeper!!! I have managed to put this on quite a few other K-9s and have included some pictures below for you to see how ferocious they all look. Now I’m trying to paint their paws and give them drool, so I still have things to work towards with them, which keeps it interesting.

For those of you not familiar with the Amaretto Breedable K-9s I hope this blog and the pictures below inspire you to check them out and maybe find your own special project to breed for with them.  You can learn everything you need to know on the K-9s by following this link:

I hope you enjoyed this week’s Spotlight and I look forward to sharing one of my favorite horse projects next week!

Until then, Happy Breeding!!

Thursday’s Breedable Spotlight

No Gravatar

Happy Thursday!  Hope everyone has been enjoying a wonderful week!

 

Today I wanted to start a fun new series I’m going to call “Thursday’s Breedable Spotlight”.  This is where I will use my blog to shine a spotlight on some of my favorite Amaretto Breedables!

 

I’m going to kick things off with one of my favorite Barnyard Birds.  I am completely obsessed with the Blue Andalusian Barnyard Bird.  Its beautiful blue coat just looks amazing with many of the Barnyard Bird eyes available.  My favorite has to be the Red Fury eye which looks awesome on all the different birds.

 

The Barnyard Birds aren’t just pretty to look at though they are fun to play with too!  Leave them roaming around your farm and when you bump into them they run off squawkin’ and flapping their wings, it’s pretty cool to watch them! I love roaming around collecting their eggs after they drop, luckily they land a soft nest!

 

If you’re not familiar with Amaretto’s Barnyard Birds, 1st of all shame on you, 2nd you should head over to the website and learn all about them!  You can learn everything you need to know on the Barnyard Bird Wiki which I have a link to below.

http://wiki3.amarettobreedables.com/index.php?title=Main_Page

 

So, I hope you enjoyed my Spotlight on Blue Andalusian Barnyard Birds!  Hopefully the beautiful pictures below will inspire you to run out and get your own Barnyard Birds!

Until next week, Happy Breeding!!
