I am from Saskatchewan Canada and a friend already playing second life told me about it and suggested I try it.

Which Amaretto Breedables do you own?
All 3 at the moment.

How did you get started in breedables?
I was a bit bored and search exploring enter a search word start tp’ing around..when i saw my first horses I had to find out more about them.

*Do you own other breedables besides Amaretto?
Usually I am trying something or other my mossms are my new side breedable.

*What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto Horses?
For me it is always trying for elementals, zodiacs, galaxies, confections, albinos and of course the flavor of the month …this years crazed. Other than those I just try to play match the traits.

Spotlight on Nulls

No Gravatar

Happy Thursday one and all! Today’s Spotlight holds a special slot, trait slot that is!  Yes that’s right today I’m shining the spotlight on those amazing placeholders called Nulls!

Nulls were introduced as a way to let breeders have the maximum number of traits on their breedable but have it still look the way they want it to look.  By using the Null traits to fill the slots of the traits you don’t want on your horse you can build yourself a highly traited horse that still looks like it has no traits!

 

The list below shows all the Null traits available for the horse and what each Null replaces.

 

Brand Null – Holds the place of Branding
Hair Gloom Null – Holds the place of Hair Gloom
Coat Gloom Null – Holds the place of Coat Gloom
Hair Chill Null – Holds the place of Hair Chill
Coat Chill Null – Holds the place of Coat Chill
Hair Warmth Null – Holds the place of Hair Warmth
Coat Warmth Null – Holds the place of Coat Warmth
Hair Blush Null – Holds the place of Hair Blush
Coat Blush Null – Holds the place of Coat Blush
Hair Haze Null – Holds the place of Hair Haze
Coat Haze Null – Holds the place of Coat Haze
Hair Hue Null – Holds the place of Hair Hue
Coat Hue Null – Holds the place of Coat Hue
Hair Luster Null – Holds the place of Hair Luster
Coat Luster Null – Holds the place of Coat Luster
Hair Gleam Null – Holds the place of Hair Gleam
Coat Gleam Null – Holds the place of Coat Gleam
Hair Opal Null – Holds the place of Hair Opal
Coat Opal Null – Holds the place of Coat Opal
Leg Null – Holds the place of socks and hoofs
Wing Null – Holds the place of Wings
Ear Size Null – Holds the place of Lanky or Scanty
Ear Style Null- Holds the place of Droop, Half Droop Left, and Half Droop Right
Racing Null – Holds the place of racing stamina
Racing Null – Holds the place of racing speed

 

Remember that not all the Nulls listed can be on one horse at the same time.  The current maximum that a horse can have at one time is 15 nulls.

 

The list below shows all the Null traits available for the K-9s and what each Null replaces.

 

Ear Size Null – Holds the place of Small or Large Ears
Size Null – Holds the place of Runt or Pick
Nose Null – Holds the place of Black Spotted, Pale, Liver Spotted, and Liver Nose
Tail Null – Holds the place of Long or Short tail
Polish Null – Holds the place of Paw Polish
Radiance Null – Holds the place of High or Low Radiance
Sheen Null – Holds the place of High or Low Sheen
Tint Null – Holds the place of Periwinkle, Lilac, Mint, Rose, Sunset, and Sunrise

 

The current maximum that a K-9 can have at one time is 8 Nulls.

 

So I hope this help to understand what the nulls are and how it’s easy to use them to get that special horse to look just the way you want it too and still have the maximum number of traits.

Check out the gorgeous horse below that belongs to AngelSouthpaws Resident.  This beautiful Black Walker has the maximum 15 Null traits, check out the stats!!! Awesome horse! Thanks for letting me share a picture of it Angel!

Scam Alert!!!!

No Gravatar

Hello everyone hope has got to enjoy some sunshine this weekend!

I have recently been getting a lot of ims about 3rd party sales. Remember Amaretto will not be able to intervene in any after market sales because this is a transaction that takes place between two in world residents and does not involve Amaretto directly.

Why do I say this? Well I want everyone to know that you need to do your best to protect your self in the market.
Don’t pass horses until you receive full payment! I know we all want to help one another out but doing this just protects you in the long run.

Don’t pass horses for someone “to see” they can see it just as well with you as owner and the horse rezzed out in world.

If you are breeding with a partner or others make sure you keep your horses in your possession.

ScamAlert

The truth of the matter is that no one in SL can “steal” any no copy, no mod object, you have to pass it or set it for sale.

I would like to think we live in a world even virtually where people do the right thing but sadly this is not true for SL or RL. So please if you are not willing to take a loss of a breedable don’t pass or set for sale for anything less than the amount of linden you are willing to take.

To those avatars out there that do take advantage of Amaretto Community members DO NOT think that we are not aware of who you are and what you do. Please treat each other with respect and honesty that you would like to be treated with in any life.

Ok guess ill climb off my soap box now guys, I just am passionate about the Amaretto Community and don’t like it when people are doing things they should not do! This is Ava over and OUT! Peaceful breeding and selling everyone!

Happy Thursday! Today I’m so very excited to shine my Spotlight directly where a spotlight was meant to shine….. on Elvis!!!

I asked the group to send me projects that they were working on and I got the surprise of my life when one of you messaged me and said you were working on an Elvis horse.  *Swoons* I was raised on the music of Elvis Presley and many of my best childhood memories include times with my family hearing Elvis music while listening to family members talk of their love for this Superstar.  Thankfully I have passed this love of Elvis and his music on to my own children and grandchildren.  Nothing has warmed my heart quite like listening to my little grandson try to warble his way through Hound Dog!

So when Angelwith Wingtips messaged me and said she was working on an Elvis horse I knew I had my next blog in the bag!  I’ve known Angel and her partner Brook since 2009 when they were both regulars at my daily auctions so I am pleased to share her special project with you all.

Her goal for the Elvis Horse is to put the following traits together:

Elvis Horse Stats

Coat: Black Piebald

Eye: Capricorn

Mane: Upright Long

Tail: Upright Long

Horn: Shadow

Wing: Blizzard or Gold

Saddle: White or black

Gold: Bridle

 

Of course I had to ask Angel what made her choose these particular traits for the Elvis horse and she had some pretty good reasons for each one.

Angel said she chose the Black Piebald because Elvis had black hair and this particular horses looks like it has sideburns.  His hair later in life was kind of tall so that’s why the Upright longs.  He was born on January 8th so his birth sign was Capricorn.  Then Angel chose the Gold to represent his jewelry and outfits and then the white and black looks good and stands for his outfits also.  This sounds like a beautiful project to me and I cannot wait to see all those wonderful traits compiled on one horse.  I may just have to give this project a try myself, how about you?

Remember, let me know what you’re working on and the Spotlight just might shine on you!!! Happy breeding everyone!!
