Happy Thursday!!  This has been an extra exciting week on the Amaretto Ranch! So much going on, so many new things, super fun events at the Jamboree and awesome Independence Editions that are hiding some pretty amazing things!  Finishing this week off with the OOAK Auction will just be the icing on the cake!! Now in my Spotlight this week we are almost through the Amaretto Alphabet and when I saw what letter we were up to this week there was nothing else I could think to write about than …..

W is for ………………… WALKERS!

Go to any market or auction anywhere in the Amaretto Community and you’ll see any number of Walkers.  They have been a favorite of many breeders for as long as I can remember.  In the Amaretto groups I watch daily as White Walkers and Black Walkers are posted with a wide array traits.  They have long been used for project after project across the grid and I have been happy to witness a lot more people showing off the other colors of Walkers (Brown, Red, Silver and Tan) also being used by more people in their projects.  How pretty they all are with the many different combinations of traits each breeder decides to put on them.

Since we have the OOAK Auction coming up tomorrow we can’t forget that the last time we auctioned a “Create Your Own Coat” what else would the winning bidder decide to create if not a new Walker!  Be sure to check out the Demon Black Walker and don’t forget to attend the OOAK Auction Friday, July 1st at 3pm slt!

Until next time, Happy Breeding!

Greetings to our Amaretto community!! We wanted to show some love and support for all of those affected by the tragic and senseless shooting in Orlando Florida on  June 12. We asked our design team to come up with an eye for all of our animals and that they did. From Friday June 24th until Monday June 27th any bundle/Kennel/Nest born can have a chance at getting the Love for Orlando eye. Our thoughts and prayers are with those in Orlando and around the world!!

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 Bluequinn Resident, she is in the Amaretto Classes and Groups 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?
My name is Blue Dashwood and I came to Second Life through simple curiosity while working on my computer. We all have those days where we need a distraction and clicking on that link proved to be mine. I am from England and the best part of SL has been meeting people from all over the world and allowing my creativity to flourish.

Which Amaretto Breedables do you own?
I am primarily a horse breeder, although I do have one pet dog called Baby Boo! He’s a butch boxer but he seems to like it;)

How did you get started in breedables?
A friend of mine had a ranch and what seemed like a million horses. For a long time I resisted breeding, as I saw how addictive it could be. However, I bought a random bundle and proudly showed it off to him. He refused to let me keep it on his ranch until, in his words, “I learnt something about horses and knew what I was doing.” So he became a mentor. I began with breeding WW/BW pinks. Then adding all blues traits onto WW/BW/Shetiques/Shetlands – creating my brand, ‘Blue Spirit’.

Do you own other breedables besides Amaretto?
No, I’ve never been tempted to be honest. One addiction is enough for me;)

What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto Horses?
This is where I get excited – my special projects. After the blue traits, I also added the yellow traits to WW and Yellow Sunshines and that is when I decided to try my hand at creating a designer horse. I created AMOC recognised ‘Blue Sunshine’ which is yellow/yellow gold traits on a Blue Denim horse. It matched together my two favourite colours! I consider myself a long line breeder and take pleasure in finding that special bundle with a particular brand or wing I want for 35 L that I can clean up and add to a project. I also breed Liberty Horses that are many gens deep.. All of my Liberties have the usual traits alongside red ear tips, blue saddle and most importantly the 4th of July branding. I enjoy breeding deeply adding new traits slowly to get a strong line. My favourite horse is the fell pony and I am also creating a Snowflake Fell and Christmas Fell with the ‘Here Comes Santa/Holly Turquoise’ eye. My goal is also to get an albino fell! Finally, I am working on my next designer project called ‘The Bumblebee’ which is yellow traits and a honeycomb eye on a Solid Black Fell Pony.

What is your favorite Amaretto Breedable ?
I think you can guess! lol

What are some other things that you enjoy doing in Second Life when you’re not taking care of your breedables?
Well, like most people I have done many things on SL, from being a Queen of a clan, owning a nightclub, helping set up an auction house and owning my own photo studio. But, best of al is being with the friends and family I have made on here, from Alf to Shaun to Jacky…amongst many others. Jacky was my joined at the hip brother on SL until our friendship became more real life and Shaun (Shaun82) is my cheeky younger brother who is one of the best auctioneers on SL and my go to person for horse advice. He is my partner in crime!

So there you go !!! Thanks Bluequinn for a great interview ! I am including some pictures of Blues special Amaretto Breedables !

Until next week Happy Breeding !!!

Happy Thursday!  Hopefully everyone is having a great breeding week and enjoying seeing the new surprises popping up from the Father’s Day Editions.  This week our journey through the Amaretto Alphabet we have reached one of THE most important things involved in breeding …..

 

V is for ……………………. Variety!!!

 

You know as they say “Variety is the spice of life” it’s also the spice of breeding.  In each of the Amaretto Breedables, Horses, K-9’s & the Barnyard Birds, Amaretto provides our breeders with a wide assortment of traits so that our breeders can combine them in whatever way they chose.  Each breeder likes different combinations of traits and can combine the traits provided to make their own version of the perfect horse.  Variety!!

You can find inspiration in many different places in the Amaretto Community! Variety!! You can find inspiration here in this blog nearly every day, by browsing the wiki, talking and watching in the Amaretto groups and by simply walking the markets and looking at all the different breedables!  Variety!!

http://amarettobreedables.com/pages/manuals

I’ve posted a few pictures below from a variety of community members to remind everyone that one of the most fun parts of Amaretto Breedables is …. Variety!!

 

Until next time, Happy Breeding!!
