Happy Hump Day Fellow Breeders!

Are you a new breeder in the community? Or, did you ever just wish you had someone that could help you understand your breedables better?  If so, then let me tell you about the Amaretto Mentor Program.

The idea for the Amaretto Mentor Program was created by our wonderful staff and the breedable community via the A.M.O.C. group meetings. It has come to life to help anyone in need of information and guidance from an experienced breeder.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can find group joiners for the Mentor Program at these locations:

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Amaretto%20Ranch%20Haven/57/152/22

Here are the basic steps to get started:

Q: How do I get a mentor if I am in need of some help?
A: Click the “Need Help” board at either of the locations listed above. You will be sent a group invite as a mentee.

Q: How do I become a mentor?
A: Click the “Become a Mentor” board at either of the locations listed above. You will be sent a group invite as a mentor.

These mentors are not Amaretto staff, just giving people who are willing to help with issues and questions one might have when breeding Amaretto animals.

Another great source of information is A.R.U. (Amaretto Ranch University)

Our university offers a wide variety of classes at different times during the day to get vital information about our breedables, support system, website, advertising and much more! So please, if you haven’t yet, check out our university sim and website.

Happy Friday Everyone! Hope everyone is having a good breeding day!

This week I had the pleasure of interviewing Just1Sarah Resident she is always helping out in the Amaretto Group so if you see her give her a big hello!!

Please tell the community a little about yourself. Where you are from and what brought you to Second Life?
~ Heya! My name is Sarah, 30 years old and from The Netherlands. I came to Second Life about 7 years ago. I have Autism with an anxiety disorder which kept me at home so Second Life is a great way to spend my time.

Which Amaretto Breedables do you own?
~ I own mainly K9’s now but I have had tons of horses back when I had my own region. So now I have a few pet horses and 3 horses I am breeding with that I just had to have because they are so pretty.

How did you get started in breedables?
~ It was years ago when I got another breedable as a present. Not long after I had a lot of them. It brought me to auction places and markets when I started to see the Amaretto Horses. I love horses in RL so that was a simple choice and pretty fast my sim was covered in horses.

*Do you own other breedables besides Amaretto?
~ No not breeding ones at least. Of course I still have bunnies in their baskets and unbirthed kittycats, meeroos, fenux and I think even fairies.

*What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto Horses?
~ I am not having a project with them. I just like to have the ones I have. I love the Belgian Draft the most.

What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto K-9s?
~ My special project is making pretty puppy’s lol. I started with only Chihuahuas because I like them so much in RL but I like Wolves too and Cairnshires. What I am doing a lot is breeding siblings with the same coats. I have 1 Blanco so far but I am hoping for more and mutts. So I have a lot of brothers and sisters. And of course I can’t resist the LE’s
What is your favorite Amaretto Breedable?
~ K9’s

What are some other things that you enjoy doing in Second Life when you’re not taking care of your breedables?
~ I make Tattoos and own my own store in that and I play Tiny Empires.

Thank You Just1Sarah for letting me interview you this week!

I have included pictures of some of Just1Sarah special Amaretto Breedables!

Happy Friday Everyone !! Hope everyone is having a good breeding day !

This week I have chosen Durgama Greatrex to interview about her Amaretto Breedables, So, if you see her in the group chat tell her hello she is always helping out in the group!

Please tell the community a little about yourself. Where you are from and what brought you to Second Life?

I am Durgama Greatrex and since 8 years on Second Life.
I am trying to live a spiritual life in rl and sl. I see no difference. We are all real ppl behind our computers.
I live in Holland and saw about SL on tv. What interested me most was the ability to create and make your own world together with other people.
So I started to learn and make all kinds of stuff especially clothes and work with Photoshop and later sculpt and mesh.

Which Amaretto Breedables do you own?

From Amaretto I never tried the dogs and the farm birds. Its all a matter of choice for me.

How did you get started in breedables?

Well my first horse was a present from a friend and the horses were just out since a few month. Since those days I have Amaretto horses. The one horse needed a partner and the first bundle was amazing.
Since those days I have always had Amaretto horses and somehow they will always be part of my SL life.

*Do you own other breedables besides Amaretto?

I tried other breedables like Mossms and Meeroos and there are a lot of nice ones that I love. I still have some around.
Since some time I help with the dodo’s and help designing.

*What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto Horses?

Now I don’t have so many horses as I used to have once but the specials I breed is trying to get the 24 traits Pegasus. And I am almost there.
And another project is the rainbow traits on white walkers.
I have them with 6 rainbow traits. They are so lovely.

What are some other things that you enjoy doing in Second Life when you’re not taking care of your breedables?

I stick to what I like and try to focus on making things. For me beauty and creativity counts and connecting to ppl. I love it to meet ppl from all over the world.

Thanks Durgama Greatrex for letting me interview you for this weeks blog !

I am including some pictures of Durgama special horses

Until next Week Happy Breeding !

Happy Friday Everyone!! Hope everyone is having a good breeding day!!

Today I had the pleasure of interviewing Kenai Runningbear! I am sure many of you have seen him in the group he is in the group a lot so say a hello to him when you see him. He is always helping out breeders that need help or showing off one of his amazing horses.

Please tell the community a little about yourself. Where you are from and what brought you to Second Life?
I was born and raised on the East Coast. After seeing Second life while watching an episode of CSI New York I decided to try it out. Shortly after starting in Second life I met the woman I will soon call my wife. We became really good friends then almost 7 years ago we were talking and decided that we should meet outside of Second life. Once we met we realized we were a perfect match. We soon had our first child together and have since had our second child together. Since starting Second life I have had many ventures to include breedable auctioneer and auction house owner.

Which Amaretto Breedables do you own?
Amaretto Horses soon to add Dogs and Barnyard Birds.
How did you get started in breedables?
I started breeding bunnies but quickly got tired of them because there wasn’t much I could do with them except feed them. A friend had shown me a horse that she had gotten and said that Amaretto had a cool Breedable horse that you could ride. I went to the Amaretto Store bought some Starters and have been breeding horses ever since. My soon to be wife and I have been fortunate enough to have been with Amaretto since shortly after they started. We have seen first-hand the many changes that have improved the horses to make them what they are today.

Do you own other breedables besides Amaretto?
No. After being with Amaretto for so long and after trying other breedables on the market I don’t get the enjoyment I do from breeding the Amaretto Horses.

What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto Horses?
Confection Horses and trying to make a 24 trait Anniversary Coat and of course the monthly Crazed Coats

What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto K-9’s?
Sadly not breeding any dogs at the moment trying to get my horses breeding where I wish them to be then I look forward to breeding dogs and Barnyard Birds.

What is your favorite Amaretto Breedable?
Amaretto Horses of course.

What are some other things that you enjoy doing in Second Life when you’re not taking care of your breedables?
My Horses take up a lot of my time but I do like to build when I get a moment

A big thank you to Kenai for taking the time to answer my questions! I have added some pictures of Kenai’s special horses.

Until next week Happy Breeding!

Happy Thursday! This week I am excited for the 2nd installment of my series of Spotlights dedicated to our amazing group moderators.  The moderator in the spotlight this week is one of the 2 mods I enjoy watching switch seamlessly between helping our breeders in 2 different languages!!

Angie Jacobus is a wonderful moderator helping out in both the main Amaretto group and the Amaretto Multi-language group and if you ask me her English is as perfect as her German!  I truly enjoy watching our multi-language mods jump back and forth helping our breeders in both groups.  Angie I don’t know what we would do without you!! Here are the answers Angie gave to my probing questions!

 

*Please tell the community a little about yourself. Where you are from and what brought you to Second Life?

I’m from Bavaria in Germany and after a friend told me about SL I made my account

 

*Which Amaretto Breedables do you own?

I breed horses and K-9

 

*How long have you been involved with Amaretto Breedables?

About 2 weeks after the release of the horses I started with breeding them

 

*How did you get started in breedables?

I got a starter pair from a friend and after their first bundle I was addicted  

 

*Do you own other breedables besides Amaretto?

Beside the horses and dogs I have some cats (KittyCats)

 

*What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto Horses?

I try for some different projects, e.g. I try to get maximum red on black/white, maximum rainbow, maximum pink … – and I always have some siblings in my herd and already got some Albinos, and I try for the Galaxy and Confection horses and for sure the monthly project from Amaretto, like the new Crazed now

*What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto K-9s?

With my K-9 I also try for the monthly project Crazed (earlier Show dog and Twist) – and I also try Mutts and Blanco’s, I already got a Blanco earlier 🙂 – and I love the Rainbow Dawilds and the spotted (Harlequin Dane + spotted eye + spotted nose)

 

*What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto Birds?

I don’t breed the birds

 

*What are some other things that you enjoy doing in Second Life when you’re not taking care of your breedables?

I’m manager of a known market (Sweetflowers) and I’m supporter in the German Firestorm support group.  To be honest, I don’t have much time for other things, but when I have time I love to do hunts – and sure I love shopping 🙂

 

*What is it that you enjoy most about being an Amaretto Group Moderator?

I love to talk to other people and help them with hints and I love talking about different experiences in breeding

 

I hope you all learned a little more about our lovely Angie! Be sure to say hello when you see her in the groups! Just a reminder to our Amaretto Community, the Amaretto Group Moderators are not privy to any inside Amaretto information, nor are they told things in advance. They are here to help out in our groups and lend a hand when they can.  The moderators have been around a long time and have many suggestions to help when you have issues but if all else fails please file a ticket on our support system and a CSR or a member of Amaretto Staff will assist you!

 

Check out the pictures below of Angie’s breeding set up and of course a selfie! Until next time happy breeding!!
