Happy Friday everyone! I thought I would use my blog this week to talk to you all regarding one of my favorite things about my job here at Amaretto, watching the Amaretto groups!! I know many people out there that do not chat in the main Amaretto groups for various reasons, but I can tell you that I look forward to opening my group every day to see what is going on out there in the Amaretto Community. It is a great way to get to know your fellow breeders and see what pretty horses they are breeding or what amazing projects others are working on. We chit chat about things other than horses and get to know one another and develop friendships that carry over into private messages. I’ve even been able to sit back and watch a few “love connections” blossom in the groups.
Now I know we do not allow advertising, trades or freebies in the groups and talking about pricing can be quite touchy in there so is generally frowned upon. However I would like to remind all the regular chatters in there and even some of the new people that this is not an excuse to be rude to others. Sometimes in conversation in the groups people ask for help and it’s just as easy to private message someone with assistance as it is to chastise them publicly in the group. I know it’s also a great way to make new friends, private message them and strike up a conversation about where and how to advertise or how you go about pricing your own breedables.
So just remember, the Amaretto groups are a great place to talk, to learn and above all else to HELP each other! So be kind to one another and until next time….
Happy, Happy, Happy Breeding everyone!!

I know last week said we would be releasing more information about the 4 OOAK Apocalypse Horses, so I am pleased to announce that these 4 horses posses some very special and new traits! I can’t tell you what they are but I think this will be very exciting!

A.M.O.C.

No Gravatar

Today I want to tell you all about A.M.O.C. (Amaretto Market Owners Coalition). A.M.O.C. needs you and you really need to join and become apart of this fast growing group.

 

What is A.M.O.C. ?

 

~Amaretto Market Owners Coalition~ is to keep the market owners and breeders together and hopefully promote some stabilization of the Secondary Market. Joining this group is by invitation only so if you know of a market owner or a breeder who supports Amaretto products that has not been invited to this group please contact a member of the Amaretto Team and let us know so we can invite them, or you can contact Bundy Xue, Mami Deerhunter or Marco Denimore.

 

What does A.M.O.C. do?

 

A.M.O.C. has monthly group meetings, where they do a lot of brainstorming on planning events, and ideas to improve the market. It a very active and informative group. You need to keep a lookout on the Amaretto Calendar on the web site so you can attend these meetings and go to the awesome events.

 

A.M.O.C Next event is 1st A.M.O.C Equestrian Extravaganza

this event will be June 23rd through June 29th.

 

What is the Equestrian Extravaganza?

 

Well, for us country folk, that’s a fancy word for Horse Fair/Show. This gives you a chance to show off your designer horses, high traited horses, or any horses that you are breeding. Bring them out and display them. I know you all have some that really make you proud. This show will also give you a chance to see what others are breeding and maybe give you some new ideas too.

 

How do I Participate?

 

You need to send a application form with your name, how many horses you’ll bring (you don’t need to say exactly what you’re gonna bring, but how many, from 1 to 3, tops, or more exactly a total of 50 prims that you can use) You can contact Bundy Xue or Mami Deerhunter for an application and fill it out and return it to them. Deadline for application return is June 22nd.

 

 

This is a totally free event for you! you will be not charged for the use of the prims. but you will have to bring your own food and salt! Also you do not have to be a group member to participate

 

There will be no selling of breedables at this Extravaganza.

 

So get those beautiful horses ready to display, and come out and enjoy the fair!!!!!
