~A Mother’s Love~
There are times when only a Mother’s love
Can understand our tears,
Can soothe our disappoints
And calm all of our fears.
There are times when only a Mother’s love
Can share the joy we feel
When something we’ve dreamed about
Quite suddenly is real.
There are times when only a Mother’s faith
Can help us on life’s way
And inspire in us the confidence
We need from day to day.
For a Mother’s heart and a Mother’s faith
And a Mother’s steadfast love
Were fashioned by the Angels
And sent from God above.

Amaretto Ranch University Classes & Website!

No Gravatar

Happy Saturday Amaretto Community! Today I would like to talk to you about the Amaretto Ranch University. As one of the teachers at ARU I would love to see more of you attend the classes each week.  We have classes at ARU on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and we teach them twice a day to give you more of a chance to fit them into your schedule.  Each class will only take about 10-15 minutes and if you complete all the classes we offer you will be eligible to graduate in the next graduation ceremony.

Classes are very informative and can even be lots of fun!  We also offer time at the end of each class for you to ask any questions you might have about whatever we cover in class that day! It’s a great way to get the answers to some of those burning questions you might have.

Every month we post the calendar of classes on the website so you can see which classes are coming up and plan accordingly.
You can find that calendar at this link: http://amarettobreedables.com/pages/ARUCalendar

AprilARUCal

Once you start attending classes you will want to be able to keep up with which ones you’ve attended and which ones you still need. That means you will want to register on the ARU website so you can do that. While at the University there are kiosk’s in the back of the classrooms that you touch and they give you a username and password in local chat. Once you have that you can go to the Amaretto Ranch University website and log in!
http://amarettoranchuniversity.com/

ARUWeb

When you get to the website click on Course Progression and you will be able to enter your user name and password. From here you will be able to see what classes you have completed and which ones you still need to attend. I always tell people to give it at least a week to show up on the website as the University Chick is a busy girl!

Be sure to watch the Amaretto University Calendar for class schedules and I look forward to seeing you in class soon!

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

This week I had the please of interviewing Lamia Starspear, she is in the Amaretto Groups so if 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 am from the U.S. and I came to Second Life with a very close friend. He is no longer here in Second LIfe, but I stayed for my Friends, my Amaretto horses and role playing.

Which Amaretto Breedables do you own?
All three; Horses, chickens and more recently K9s.

How did you get started in breedables?
A friend of mine asked if I liked horses, then gave me a brown appaloosa and explained how to take care of it.
That was how it all started!

Do you own other breedables besides Amaretto?
Nope. Well, I do have three pet Fennux from their first year.

What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto Horses?
I am always chasing special coats. I breed for Elementals, galaxies, zodiacs, confections, dazzles, albinos and each new crazed. I’m also working on a Halloween project with the overo amber coat.
What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto K-9s?
I’m breeding siblings and same coats to try for mutts and blancos.
No luck yet!

What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto Barnyard Birds?
Always try for the crazed birds.
Love my Crazy Birds!

What is your favorite Amaretto Breedable ?
Horses, definitely. Especially the rare ones.
I love to collect as much as I love to breed, and I make a point of buying every new Limited Edition to squirrel away!

What are some other things that you enjoy doing in Second Life when you’re not taking care of your breedables?
I role play at various sims and spend time with my Master and with friends. I also enjoy modding avis, and -might- have a SMALL avatar buying addiction.
…I also bite. A lot. Mooo.

Well there you go !! Thank you Lamia for a great interview ! Lamia shared some pictures of her special Amaretto Breedables.

Until next week Happy Breeding !!

Happy Thursday Everyone!! It’s been a fun week so far waiting on the surprises from the Spring Editions to start dropping.  Now that they are starting to be posted in group it’s been exciting to watch!!  Only one more day to get out to the Amaretto stores and get your Spring Editions while they’re still on sale!!

This week the spotlight is going to shine on the next letter in the Amaretto Alphabet which is also one of my absolute favorite Amaretto coats!!

 

O is for ……………… Overo!!

 

Back in November of 2015 to celebrate Thanksgiving we released the 2015 Thanksgiving Limited Edition Horses.  These beautiful LE’s were hiding this new and absolutely fabulous Overo Amber coat!  I have seen quite a few people talking in the groups about using these pretty coats in their projects.  I know I sure have an Overo Amber project going and can’t get enough of this pretty horse!

OveroAmber

 

Then in March of 2016 we wanted to do something to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day so we brought out the 2016 St. Patrick’s Day Edition horses.  These LE’s were hiding the also beautiful Overo Clover coat.  This is also one of those coats that is awesome to use in your projects and I can’t wait to get some and start my own Overo Army!

Until next week, Happy Breeding and don’t forget to get those Spring Editions while they’re still on sale!!!!

 

 

Check Out The Amaretto GPS!

Happy Tuesday Amaretto community! Today I am going to talk about the GPS. The GPS is super handy and helpful. It can change all your settings on your breedables on the sim with just one click. Not only is the GPS great on your breeding sim, but also at the markets. Most markets want you to make sure that movement, animations, and sounds are all off to help keep down lag and the GPS is the answer. You can use the GPS at the markets as it will only set any breedable that you own!!

So let’s check out these handy tools, and learn how to use them, it will save lots of time.

Interview With an Amaretto Breeder

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

This week I had the pleasure of interviewing sativa Bade he is in the groups so be sure to send him a big hello when you see him !!

Please tell the community a little about yourself. Where you are from and what brought you to Second Life?

I came into SL , introduced by a real life friend about 9 years ago. In those days mostly as a Dj , a job I had real life for a long time and was happy to proceed in SL.
I’m from the Netherlands , born and raised in Rotterdam.
The last years I have been sick, I have a extremely rare form of progressive migraine, resulting in brain damage best compared to MS.
I like spending time in SL and chat with the awesome people I have met over the past 9 years.
Ive been an auctioneer and was a long time DJ. Due to my illness I at least for now retired those jobs.

Which Amaretto Breedables do you own?
Horses and Barnyard Birds

How did you get started in breedables?
Via friends I first learned about horses, till then I had a horse from HI! Equreal dagon that was 96 prims and u could only ride them.
Once a Breast Cancer Awareness horse entered my life, I never recovered.
They are a big part of my sl, I can say at the moment , even the biggest.

Do you own other breedables besides Amaretto?
They have others ?

What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto Horses?

In my horses I picture a certain horse, and I will not stop breeding till I have it. The final step in that process is to pet the first horse that has all the traits I wanted .

At the moment I took a step back from designer horses and I breed mainly for the special coats ( Dazzle,Confection,Zodiac,Galaxy) for that purpose I use white horses with dbl gleam high. Its fun to do, and every bundle is exciting.
In the process I use siblings, and recently got rewarded with a Albino.

Side projects are my 10 blacks – Triple Wraths and restarting a Rain project. and then some, lol.

What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto K-9s?
Nothing yet , but I got my mind set on a Beagle with Ear dips 🙂

What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto Barnyard Birds?
The Wrath coat – Combined with Rage eye . I would have to blame main Amaretto group for talking me into that.

What is your favorite Amaretto Breedable ?

Horses

What are some other things that you enjoy doing in Second Life when you’re not taking care of your breedables?

I recently opened a W.W.E fan group where we talk about wrestling all day
And I like to advice beginning deejays or music venue’s.
Besides that I’m a long time moderator at the Breedable Bartering Group, a job I love to do and try to do at my best.
I also like to build, and change my stalls every few weeks.

There you go !! Thanks Sativa for a great interview !! I have posted some pictures of Sativa special Amaretto Breeables !

Until next week Happy Breeding !!!

Happy Thursday everyone!  I hope everyone is having a wonderful breeding week! A lot has been going on since my last blog, the hidden surprises in the ARU horses showed up and were fabulous and also the Spring Editions are at all the Amaretto stores so be sure you get yours while they are out!

This week as we continue our journey through the Amaretto Alphabet we get to talk about something that all of us Barnyard Breeders spend hours staring at our birds waiting on!

 

N is for ………….Nests!!

 

Whether they are starter nests you buy at the Amaretto stores or if they are non-starter nests you’ve been waiting on  all week, they’re still exciting!

The starter nests from the Amaretto stores you simply need to click them and chose birth and they birth right away.  When your birds drop their own nests those will be non-starter nests.  The non-starter nests need to be placed in the incubator and take 1 hour to hatch.  The incubators can birth up to 12 Barnyard Birds at one time.

After having the Barnyard Bird nest there will be a 3 day nesting period for both the male and the female Barnyard Bird.  After the nesting period is completed it will then take approximately 2 days for the Barnyard Bird to reach 100% vigor provided they have vivacity of 85% or higher.

 

If you do not have the Barnyard birds yet you best run out and get you a set so that you to can join in on the fun exciting surprises that breeding the Barnyard Birds!  Until next week, Happy Breeding!!
