First off I would like to take a few minutes to say thank you in advance for your kind and thoughtful support to this wonderful cause! I know many of you out there have been affected by cancer or have had a loved one or close friend that has had this awful disease. RFL has helped with research for the advancement of treatment and hopefully one day a cure. I am a cancer survivor and have seen and gone through a lot of treatments and seen the advancement first hand in the treatments. Hopefully one day we can find the cure as cancer can and is very scary disease. Again from the bottom of my heart, I thank you all!!!!!!

C’mon Let’s Twist Again….

Let’s twist again… Guess what horses we will be using for May?! We are combining the Icelandic and Perlino!! From May 5th 2014 until June 5th 2014 you can breed any color Icelandic and any color Perlino together and you have the chance of discovering a brand new coat designed especially for the Twist called Icelino! The Icelino coats do have the ability to pass and of course each will also come with a very cool twist eye that can pass as well. So get those Icelandics and Perlinos ready for next month and have the chance at some Icelinos!

Our K9s want to twist too so from May 5th 2014 until June 5th 2014 if you breed any color Cairn Terrier with any color Staffordshire Bull Terrier you have the chance of discovering a brand new coat designed especially for the Twist called Cairnshire! The Cairnshire coats do have the ability to pass and of course each will also come with a very cool twist eye and collar that can pass as well. So just to be clear you need to breed any color Cairn Terrier with any color Staffordshire Bull Terrier in order to have a chance at getting one of the brand new Cairnshires!

Here are the links to the Icelandics and Perlinos so you can check them out….

Bull Riding Event Loads of Fun

No Gravatar

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

Wow!! If you were not at the Bull Riding Event you missed a lot of fun! Big Black Bart was being mean!
The event started off with the Amaretto Staff showing everyone just how to ride that bull!
Everyone had a blast hanging out, laughing and joking, and of course giving the birthday boy Jeff a hard time! Was fun watching everyone try and stay on as long as they could and the threats to Black Bart were pretty funny! Just glad Black Bart didn’t get barbequed after the event.

Amaretto really enjoys doing these events for the Amaretto community. So, if you missed this one be sure to be at the next one! There were 3 top riders and congratulations to them.

Winners!

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!

The answer to this question depends on just how many breedables you have. Below are quideline charts that will help you know how long your food will last!

 

 

Horses

Amaretto Ranch Breedables suggests that you have only 8 horses to one breedable food and salt.

Snapshot _ Amaretto Ranch Breedables Main Store - Breedable hor 7

1 horse ~ 1 food/4 weeks

2 horses ~ 1 food/2 weeks

4 horses ~ 1 food/7 days

7 horses ~ 1 food/4 days

8 horses ~ 2 food/7 days

14 horses ~ 1 food/2 days

28 horses ~ 1 food/day

56 horses ~ 2 food/day

84 horses ~ 3 food/day

112 horses ~ 4 food/day

 

Always make sure that your food is in the same group as your horses. So often the food is in one group and the horse in another

 

If your horse is not eating, double check that you have food out and it’s within range

 

If you move your horses around, always remember to reset their home.

 

 

K-9s

Amaretto Ranch Breedables suggests that you have only 8 K-9s to one breedable food and chew toy.

k92

1 K-9 ~ 1 food/4 weeks

2 K-9s ~ 1 food/2 weeks

4 K-9s ~ 1 food/7 days

7 K-9s ~ 1 food/4 days

8 K-9s ~ 2 food/7 days

14 K-9s ~ 1 food/2 days

28 K-9s ~ 1 food/day

56 K-9s ~ 2 food/day

84 K-9s ~ 3 food/day

112 K-9s ~ 4 food/day

 

Always make sure that your food is in the same group as your K-9s. So often the food is in one group and the K-9 in another.

 

If your K-9 is not eating, double check that you have food out and it’s within range

 

If you move your K-9s around, always remember to reset their home.

 

 

Barnyard Birds

Amaretto Ranch Breedables suggests that you have only 8 Barnyard Birds to one food and orange rind

 

If your Barnyard Bird is not eating, double check that you have food out and it’s within range

 

If you move your Barnyard Birds around, always remember to reset their home.

 Barley bird seed_001

1 Barnyard Bird ~ 1 food/4 weeks

2 Barnyard Bird ~ 1 food/2 weeks

4 Barnyard Bird ~ 1 food/7 days

7 Barnyard Bird ~ 1 food/4 days

8 Barnyard Bird ~ 2 food/7 days

14 Barnyard Bird ~ 1 food/2 days

28 Barnyard Bird ~ 1 food/day

56 Barnyard Bird ~ 2 food/day

84 Barnyard Bird ~ 3 food/day

112 Barnyard Bird ~ 4 food/day

 

No one likes to be hungry, not even your breedable. Hope these charts help you understand how much food your breedable really eats.
