You can always check out the ARU website to see what classes you have taken and which you still need!

http://amarettoranchuniversity.com/

I wanted to remind everyone to turn in those graduations applications so we can start planing our next graduation!!

Once you have completed all the classes at the ARU you drop off your application for graduation into the mailbox! Once we receive enough applications we start planning the next graduation celebration!

You can learn all sorts of great information about Horses, K-9s, and Barnyard Birds by attending the classes. Not to mention get to know the csrs or even make a few breeding friends!

Forever Foal & Perpetual Puppy

No Gravatar

Happy Friday Everyone ! Hope you all had a Happy Thankgiving !

Today  I wanted to touch on the Forever Foal an the Perpetual Puppy. If you have a Amaretto Horse or Amaretto K-9 that is special an you want to keep it forever without feeding it then this is what you will need.

Forever Foal
The Forever Foal makes the Retired horse so that It will not have to eat food any more . You can keep it forever without buying food ! Everything else on the horse will work normally just will not need food. The Forever Foal only works on retired horses 120 days old that is retired.
The text on a forever foal will say pet instead of retired.
The Forever Foal can be found in any Amaretto Store.

Perpetual Puppy
The Perpetual Puppy makes a Spayed/Neutered K-9 no longer eats food it works just like the forever foal.
The Perpetual Puppy has to be over 126 days old female or male. Text will also say Pet instead of Spayed/Neutered
The Perpetual Puppy can be found in any of the K-9’s Stores

**IMPORTANT NOTE**
Although the Forever Foal is transferable, the Forever Foal certificate MUST be turned in by the purchaser ONLY. The reason this is a requirement is because every Forever Foal certificate is checked against our transaction data base. Once a Forever Foal certificate is redeemed by the purchaser it is marked as Redeemed and becomes void. The reason we have the certificate as transferable is so the purchaser may pass the certificate to Jaymee Caproni for redemption. Again, please remember, the certificates cannot be purchased and transferred to another avatar for redemption.

Instructions:
After purchase of the Forever Foal
Please place the Certificate AND the Retired horse you wish to be your Forever Foal in a folder named “Forever Foal <your sl name>”
Send the folder to Jaymee Caproni.
Until Next Time Happy Breeding !

The Amaretto Mentor Program

No Gravatar

The Amaretto Mentor Program was an idea born from our wonderful staff and community via the A.M.O.C. group meetings, and is a group that will help anyone in need of information and guidance from an experienced breeder.

The mentors are giving people who are willing to help with issues and questions one might have when breeding Amaretto animals, mentors will not be Amaretto Staff. Of course the Mentors will be able to contact Amaretto Staff with any questions they may have, but we want to encourage everyone in the community to extend a helping hand and share your knowledge of Amaretto Breedables.

Sign up as a Mentor

If you would like to help out a new breeder or even a breeder that’s been in the game for a while who just has some questions, then we encourage you to go to the Haven sim, University sim or the Amaretto main store and sign up to become a Mentor. You can click the “Become a Mentor” board and you will be assigned a group tag of Mentor. Then you just need to go into the Amaretto Mentor group and introduce yourself and see if anyone needs any help!

Sign up as a Mentee

Now if you have questions about breeding or you’re a new breeder in the community, you can go to the Haven sim, University sim or the Amaretto main store and sign up to become a Mentee. You can click the “New to Amaretto Breedables” board and you will be assigned a group tag of Mentee. Then you just need to go into the Amaretto Mentor group and introduce yourself and ask if anyone is around that could answer some of your questions!

This group is amazing, and is also a great way to meet other breeders!!

Until next time, Happy Breeding !
