Interview With an Amaretto Breeder

No Gravatar

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

This week I had the pleasure of interviewing Fe Dubrovna. Fe is in the Amaretto Group so when you see her give her a big hello!!

Please tell the community a little about yourself. Where you are from and what brought you to Second Life?
Hi! I’m Fe….in RL and SL! I am from Memphis, TN where I work as a dog groomer at an animal hospital. I used to work for a corporate salon and one of the other groomers recommended Secondlife to me. After day 1 I was hooked.

Which Amaretto Breedables do you own?
All of them, I have them all! Horses, K9s, and Barnyard Birds. It’s an addiction. I plan to own the ponie pals too as soon as they’re released!

How did you get started in breedables?
I lived with my close family here for years. We lived together and would help each other run our different businesses and build together. In October 2010, Kiyla brought home a baby horse and we all fell in love. In a matter of weeks we had the whole sim filled with them and had to move just so we could have room for our work and our horses.

Do you own other breedables besides Amaretto?
I used to breed Meeroos too, but stopped shortly after they were released. I still have a beta meeroo, but no longer breed them.

What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto Horses?
My main project for the past year is a Whovian Horse because I am a fan of Doctor Who. It has 15 traits and I am almost there. I just birthed a horse with 13 of the needed traits!

Aside from that I am still trying for an Albino Percheron or an Albino Exmoor Pony.

What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto K-9s?
I have a few sets breeding for Blanco’s and mutts that I do not currently own.

Also, as a collector I had a hard time finding the 2013 Give Thanks Mahogany k9. Now that I have found one I am breeding him trying to get more of these out into circulation for anyone else that might be out searching for one.

What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto Barnyard Birds?
I am trying to get more 2013 Give Thanks Mahogany birds out into circulation…same reason as the k9 version of it.
What is your favorite Amaretto Breedable?
This isn’t a fair question. How do you pick? I’ve loved horses for 5 years! I love the doggies too! If I did have to pick, I would have to pick the horses. They have had a place in my heart for the longest.

What are some other things that you enjoy doing in Second Life when you’re not taking care of your breedables?
I was no aware there was anything else. O.O I’m just kidding…sorta lol. I no longer build in SL because collecting takes a lot of my time. I search over 10 sims daily to try to find things I am missing and help other collectors sometimes find things they are missing as well. Other than that I do try to spend time hanging out with friends when they are online, playing games, and going on an occasional hunt for a gacha when someone drags me along lol

There you go!! Thank you Fe for letting me interview you for this week’s connection!

I have included some pictures of Fe’s special Amaretto Breedables!

Until next week Happy Breeding!!

Spotlight on the Amaretto Alphabet … G is for….

No Gravatar

Happy Thursday!! It was good to see so many of you out at the Community Meeting last night!  Those are always super fun and we enjoy getting to see so many of the names we talk with in group in “virtual person”!  This week we are going to continue our journey through the Amaretto Alphabet by talking about some of the most sought after horses out there!

 

G…………….. is for Galaxy Horses!!

 

The Galaxy horses are some of my personal favorites!  These beautiful horses can be randomly birthed from breeding any 2 horses that have Galaxy eyes. That’s the only requirement!! You can check out all the Galaxy eyes by going to this link here:

http://wiki.amarettobreedables.com/index.php?title=Galaxy_Eyes

 

The Galaxy Horses can NOT pass their coats.  However, breeding a Galaxy horse with another Galaxy horse or with any other horse with Galaxy eyes you will slightly increase your chance for another Galaxy Horse.

I also make sure that my Galaxy eye horses are siblings that way I have a chance at getting either a Galaxy horse or an Albino!! Multi-tasking Amaretto style!!

 

Check out the beautiful Galaxy horses below and be sure to set up your own breeding groups to try for a Galaxy horse of your own!! Until next time, Happy Breeding everyone!

Interview With an Amaretto Breeder

Happy Friday Everyone!! Hope everyone is having a good breeding day!!
This week I had the pleasure of interviewing AussieBloke Siemens so when you see him in the groups give him a big hello!

Please tell the community a little about yourself. Where you are from and what brought you to Second Life?
Well, as my name would suggest, I am from Australia. I currently live in South Australia, where I have met the love of my life, in GMT+9.5. I saw Second Life on a Television program and decided to give it a crack. I have been mistaken for Austrian, and a female, although I thought ‘Bloke’ was a dead giveaway.

Which Amaretto Breedables do you own?
At the moment, I am doing the horses only, but I have bred chickens and K9’s in the recent past.

How did you get started in breedables?
The usual way. A well-meaning friend said, “Here. Have a couple of horses. They aren’t addictive.” LIES! I’ve been hooked ever since.

Do you own other breedables besides Amaretto?
I have dabbled in others, but none were ever a serious contender.

What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto Horses?
Hmmm I have a few little ones simmering away. I have a few breeding for 25T’s, some Black and Whites, Pinks and Purples, and a cute Spotted Shetland with Saddle in a color combination that looks unexpectedly pretty. (More later on that one) I am also breeding 15x Nulls and have quite a few of them.

What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto K-9s?
Nothing at this time, just the crazed when we have the stock.

What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto Barnyard Birds?
Same as the K9’s at this stage

What is your favorite Amaretto Breedable?
Ask me which is my favorite child. It would be easier. (Horses actually)

What are some other things that you enjoy doing in Second Life when you’re not taking care of your breedables?
I like to look at the markets, or go exploring. I haven’t had a lot of free time in SL lately, but I have always enjoyed live shows, and tribute bands.

I am including some pictures of Aussie’s special breedables.
Thank You Aussie for letting me interview you this week.

Until next week Happy Breeding!!

Spotlight on the Amaretto Alphabet …. F is for ….

No Gravatar

Happy Thursday!! It’s been an exciting day with the newness showing up from the Valentine Editions!  Hope you are all enjoying seeing the new things!  It’s time for my Spotlight to continue shining on the Amaretto Alphabet and we’re moving right along to one of the greatest things available in the Amaretto horses!

 

F ………… is for Forever Foal!

 

The Forever Foal is a certificate you can buy for your retired horse so that it will NOT require food anymore!  This means you can keep your horse in your inventory as long as you want and when you take it out it will not be hungry!!

The Forever Foal certificate is sold in all Amaretto Stores.  It must be redeemed by the person who purchases it.  After using the certificate the hover text will say Pet instead of Retired.  All other functions for a Retired horse will still operate normally.   The Forever Foal certificate is an option available for the horses, it is not a requirement.  If you do not want to purchase it you can continue to fee your retired horse’s pet food.

After you purchase the Forever Foal certificate all you need to do is place the certificate and the retired horse you wish to be a Forever Foal in a folder and name the folder “Forever Foal <your sl name>”.  Then you send that folder to Jaymee Caproni and she will work her magic and return the horse to you in a folder named “Forever Foal from Jaymee Caproni”.   It’s just that easy!!

Once a retired horse is turned into a Forever Foal it cannot be turned back.

 

**IMPORTANT NOTE** Although the certificates are transferable, they MUST be turned in by the PURCHASER ONLY. The reason this is a requirement is because every certificate is checked against our transaction data base. Once a 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 CAN NOT be purchased and transferred to another avatar for redemption. I will not be able to redeem the certificate, and it will be returned.

 

Until next time Happy Breeding everyone!!!

Interview With an Amaretto Breeder

No Gravatar

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

This week I had the pleasure of interviewing LuLu Starbrook.
She is in the group so when you see her give her a big hello!

Please tell the community a little about yourself. Where you are from and what brought you to Second Life?
I’m from Michigan, and I actually found out about SL through my job in an academic library. At first my exploration was to see if SL would be useful as a learning platform. It didn’t take long before I got hooked on the social aspects. I can’t believe that I’ve been in SL for over 9 years!

Which Amaretto Breedables do you own?
Horses, K-9s, and Barnyard Birds

How did you get started in breedables?
I was wandering around a breedables market in 2010 and saw the beta for Amaretto horses. I couldn’t wait until they became available. It was total chaos when the first horses came out. I missed the server meltdown, though, because I was at work.

Do you own other breedables besides Amaretto?
Yes, I’ve owned a lot — Champion horses, ABC horses, KittyCatS, Ozimals, Dodos (almost forgot about them), Meeroos, Mystics.

What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto Horses?
I recently got my first glitter horns, so I’m adding them to my Imagination Emeralds; Molten Roan Gold’s and Silver’s.

What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto K-9s?
I just got my very first crazed — Rainbow Crazed Coat Into The Wild Zebra!

What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto Barnyard Birds?
No special projects right now.

What is your favorite Amaretto Breedable?
The horses 🙂

What are some other things that you enjoy doing in Second Life when you’re not taking care of your breedables?
I like dancing and attending live concerts. I used to enjoy modifying prefab houses, but I rarely have a house now, because I need the prims for my breedables!

There you go!!
Thank you LuLu for letting me interview you for this week’s blog. I have included some pictures of LuLu special Amaretto Breedables.

Until next week Happy Breeding!!
