Dream Pink

No Gravatar

Hey fellow breeders!

Today I would like to shine the spotlight on a new awesome barnyard bird that is out.

This new breed is called Dream Pink and it was created by Ɛяιη Vσи Mυиѕтεя (19erin87) and the Amaretto design team after Erin won the “create your own barnyard bird breed” at the Country Fair Auction on July 14th 2017!.

I think this coat is very beautiful and different, it reminds me of the memorable haven horse in the horses with its see through-ness.

The Dream Pink breed DOES have the ability to pass!.

Thats all from me today, have a great end to your weekend and see you all in the groups.

Hugs Marku.

Bouncing Breedables?

No Gravatar

Happy Hump Day Fellow Breeders!

Have you ever noticed your breedables gettin’ jiggy with it? That is, their text seem to be bouncing? Just take a look at my ponies!

 

If you’ve ever encountered this, here are a few step by step instructions on how to fix it.

First a little bouncing music:

Step One
Push your keyboard back, your mouse and anything that you don’t want to knock over. It really bites when you’ve got your bounce on and you knock over your coffee, tea, coke, pepsi or whatever your preferred drink is.

Step Two
Stand up and push your chair out of the way. This is another hazard when getting your bounce on. Nothing worse than tripping over your chair. If you do, just hope nobody is watching and if someone does see you trip over your chair, give them that look as to ask, “How did that get there?”

Step Three
Just start bouncing up and down. In mere moments, you will begin to smile! Before you know it your jumping up and down full of joy. However, depending on your fitness level, you will start to get tired after a few minutes or maybe even a few seconds!

Which brings us to…
Step Four
Now if your awesome bouncing breedables were watching you jump up and down with glee, it is hoped that your exhaustion has tired them out, as well, and they will just stop bouncing!

IF ALL ELSE FAILS
Use your GPS to turn off movements, animations and reset home.  You can, also, perform this on each individual breedable through its menu. This will fix your bouncing breedables!
P.S. If you actually got up from your chair to jump up and down, PLEASE send me a photo of you doing this!

Happy Thanksgiving to those that observe the holiday! Till next time…HAPPY BREEDING!

Disclaimer: Amaretto assumes no liability for any injuries that may result in bouncing up and down!

Hello everyone its a terrific Tuesday here at the Ranch! I know that a lot of people are dealing with kids out of school, family visiting, planning dinners, or even traveling yourself.
The holidays are a wonderful time to spend with family!

Web Master / Script Wrangler:

These are the only Official Amaretto Employees. Please dont confuse moderators, AMOC officers, or even ARU Teachers for Official Amaretto Employees because they are not.

Also an Amaretto staff member will never approach you trying to sell food or any other products that are sold exclusively by the following business alts:

It should also be known that Amaretto is not directly associated with any market sims or auction houses. So if you thought someone was an Official Amaretto Employee and they are not listed above they are NOT an Official Amaretto Employee.
