From April 5th, 2013 until May 4, 2013 if you breed two Mecklenburger’s together you have a chance at getting an Amaretto Mecklenburger Show Horse!

If you don’t know what a Mecklenburger is check them out here:

And for the Amaretto Best In Show K9 from April 5th, 2013 until May 4, 2013 if you breed two English Bull Terrier’s together you have a chance at getting a Best In Show English Bull Terrier! Just a reminder you can breed ANY English Bull Terrier Standard or Colored together, for example, you can breed a Standard to a Colored or vice versa and still have a chance at a Best In Show English Bull Terrier.

I just want to remind you of the event that is happening on March 28th at 11am SL time. The Amaretto Easter Egg Hunt.

We will have lots of pretty eggs hidden around different Amaretto sims that will contain Horse bundles, K-9 Kennels and Barnyard Bird nests!

All these were donated by Amaretto staff so if you ever wondered what your Amaretto staff breeds, this is how you will find out.

 
So get out of bed or take a break on the spring cleaning and get to the Easter hunt.
We look forward to seeing you there having a good time.

Laughter!!!!

I figured with the crazy weather everywhere, SL acting crazy, and it being Monday that maybe some laughter was needed!

So I have gathered up a few jokes and some funny pictures, so set back, relax and laugh. After all , laughter makes everything better!!!!!

 

It was a sunny afternoon when Bob said to George,Hey, George, why don’t we get ourselves 2 horses? We could ride them in the summer and in the winter we could put them in the paddock behind the house.” George thought it was a great idea, so the next day they went out and bought themselves 2 horses. They rode them in the summer, but when winter came George got worried. He said “Hey, Bob, how are we going to tell them apart next spring?” Bob said, “Well, I’ll shave the mane off mine and you shave the tail off yours.” This satisfied George, so he did. The next spring when they went back to get their horses they found the horses’ hair had all grown back. Alarmed, George said, “Oh great, now how are we going to tell them apart?” and Bob said, “Well, you can have the black one and I’ll take the white one.”

 

A cowboy goes into a bar, has a beer, walks outside and finds his horse has been stolen. He walks back into the bar, fires his gun through the ceiling. “Which one of you stole my hoss?” he yells. No one answers. “All right, I’m gonna have one more beer and if my hoss ain’t outside by the time I finish, I’m gonna do what I dun in Texas.” He drinks another beer, walks outside, and his horse is back. So he gets on it and gets ready to ride out of town. The bartender walks out of the bar and asks, “Say pardner, what happened in Texas?” The cowboy turns to him, and says, “I had to walk home.”

 

Three race horses stood in their stalls. One said to other others: “I ran 20 races and I won 15 of them!” he bragged. The next said with a snort, “Well, I ran 30 races and won 25 of them!” Then the third horse spoke up proudly, “Yeah, I ran 41 races and won 39 of them!” This seemed to settle the topic when the horses noticed a Greyhound outside their stalls. The Greyhound said, “I ran 100 races and I won 99 of them.” The horses looked at each other in amazement and one gasped, “Wow!

A talking greyhound!”

 

 

This Kentucky horse breeder had a filly that won every race in which she was entered. But as she got older she became very temperamental. He soon found that when he raced her in the evening, she would win handily, but when she raced during the day she would come in dead last. He consulted the top veterinarians and horse psychologists to no avail. He finally had to give up because it had become … a real night mare.

I bought a horse for 10 Lindens!

Hey guys and gals out the in breedingland! I do hope that everyone is doing well today and got to enjoy a great bundle, kennel, or nest!

I wanted to talk to you guys about something that is pretty serious for a minute. It’s very important that we as breeders, sellers, and even barters take the steps necessary to protect ourselves.

Amaretto has to take a position not to be involved with after market sales disputes. We have taken this position for over the past year, so please remember when buying, selling, or trading that you are entering a agreement with the other person not Amaretto.

If  you find yourself in  a situation like this you will have to work it out with the seller, Amaretto will not be able to step in and make any judgement calls as to who is right or wrong, or who the breedable belongs to! You can abuse report and file tickets with linden labs when you encounter issues with another resident.

For the same reasons will not be able to assist you with missed-priced issues, you will need to contact and work it out with the buyer.

Another important thing to remember is that when setting a breedable for sale that you do it in a way that no one can buy the Breedable for the default 10 lindens. The new viewers that we are using these days has made this much easier with the apply button.

I hate to see people taken advantage of, so please be careful when you are making these transactions.  Remember if it seems to good to be true is probably is!

I know that most of you guys already know this stuff but I just wanted to remind everyone its easy to get comfortable and forget to take the extra steps necessary to protect yourself. As much as I would like to believe everyone is honest and aren’t people that will take advantage of you or the situation at hand,  it’s simply not true and we must be proactive Breeders, Sellers, and Barters!

Until next time Happy Breeding this is Ava over and out!

Hot off the Press!!!!!

There is something new at all the Amaretto Stores!

 

Amaretto has a book available called HOW TO FILE A TICKET. It was written by Avalon Crystal and it’s awesome. It is a simple instruction guide. Right beneath the book are 2 different Website boards that you can click on to pull the sites up for Support or the Main site. Wow!!!! This will surely come in handy when little things do go wrong. This book is available at all Amaretto Store Locations , and it is FREE!!!!

 

I have included 2 pictures below that shows you what the display looks like when you visit the store.
