Showhorses From Previous Years [RECAP]

Hey Everyone!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend! Since we have started getting the new round of showhorses (The Rabicano Showhorse in June) I thought it would be a great idea to do a recap on all of the wonderful showhorses from years past!

You can no longer get these coats from breeding, you can only purchase them from fellow breeders in the 3rd party market but wow are these showhorses pretty!

 

 

They are great collectors’ items so keep an eye out on the market if you want to collect these, they are most definitely not that common on the market these days.

Remember if you want to breed for July’s showhorse its by breeding 2 Spotted Shetlands together for a chance at a new Showcase Spotted Shetland!

That’s all from me today, Hugs Marku <3

Get In The Know With Amaretto!

Happy Hump Day Fellow Breeders!

Daily, we see people asking how to do this or that in the groups. While it is perfectly fine to ask questions in the many Amaretto-owned groups, there are some other ways of getting the information you need. Amaretto schedules meetings and events every month to keep you in the know about our products. You are encouraged to become involved with Amaretto and the many things that we do for our customers and the community!

Amaretto Ranch University: The mission of Amaretto Ranch University is to educate our community on all Amaretto products. We believe that to achieve full knowledge of our products means to fully enjoy them. ARU classes are held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9AM and 5PM and on Saturday at 11AM. They don’t last long and you can really learn things you didn’t know. Check the calendar and get to class! http://amarettobreedables.com/pages/ARUCalendar

Question and Answer With A CSR: Several times a week you will see a notice from an Amaretto staff member holding mini question and answer times. Feel free to drop in and chat!

Community Meetings: Community meetings are held on the last Wednesday of every month. This is a chance for you to hear about the latest Amaretto news straight from the staff. It, also, gives you another opportunity to ask questions, get answers and to express concerns.
In fact, there is a Community meeting today at 1PM and we hope you’ll be there!

Amaretto Market Owners Coalition Meetings: AMOC meetings are held on the second Friday of each month. The purpose of AMOC is to bring Market Owners and Breeders together. At each meeting, there are designated officers who can discuss your suggestions, concerns, and just talk about breeding. Quarterly events, sponsored by AMOC, are designed to unite the community.

Pink, Pink & More Pink!!

Happy Saturday breeding community!!

Starts singing because you know I’m all about that pink ‘Bout that pink ‘Bout that pink…wait that’s wrong …

It’s all about NATIONAL PINK DAY!!

National Pink Day is observed annually on June 23rd. This day is set aside for the color pink and all it represents.

First used as a color name in the late 17th century, pink is a pale red color which got its name from a flower of same name.

According to surveys in both the United States and Europe with results indicating that the color pink combined with white or pale blue is most commonly associated with femininity, sensitivity, tenderness, childhood and the romantic. Pink, when combined with violet or black is associated with eroticism and seduction.

Dating back to the 14th century, “to pink” (the verb) means “to decorate with a perforated or punched pattern.”

It would have been curious to find pink used in fabric or decor during the Middle Ages. Occasionally it was seen in women’s fashion and religious art. In the 13th and 14th century, the Christ child was sometimes portrayed dressed in pink, the color associated with the body of Christ. Pink was mainly used for the flesh color of faces and hands during the Renaissance.

The Rococo Period (1720-1777) was the golden age for the color pink. Pastel colors became very fashionable in all the courts of Europe during this time. Madame de Pompadour (1721-1764), the mistress of King Louis XV of France, was known for wearing the color pink, often combined with light blue. At one point in time, Ms. Pompadour had a particular tint of pink made specifically for her.

Pink ribbons or decorations were worn by young boys in 19th century England. The men in England wore red uniforms and since boys were considered small men, boys wore pink.

Pink became much bolder, brighter and more assertive in the 20th century and 1931, the color “Shocking Pink” was introduced.

As one of the most common colors of flowers, pink serves to attract the insects and birds that are necessary for pollination.

In the pink – To be in top form, in good health, in good condition.
To see pink elephants – To hallucinate from alcoholism.
Pink slip – To be given a pink slip means to be fired or dismissed from a job. First recorded in 1915 in the United States.
Pink-collar worker – Persons working in jobs conventionally regarded as “women’s work.”
Pink Money – the pink pound or pink dollar is an economic term which refers to the spending power of the LGBT community.
Tickled pink – means extremely pleased.

The most apparent way to celebrate is to wear pink. Enjoy foods and beverages that are pink. Give a donation to any of the charities that use the color pink. Use #NationalPinkDay in social media.

 

 

And of course we can celebrate with our breedables whether horses, k-9s, barnyard birds or ponie pals.  Here are links to just a few of my personal favorite “pinks”!!

Things you should know!

Hello everyone! Hope everyone is having a great Thursday I am ready for FRIYAY!! I wanted to talk with you guys about a few breeding terms that you may or may not be familiar with.

DOS- DIrect Off Spring – this means that mom or dad had the trait desired but the animal itself does not! (DOS animals can pass the desired trait even if not showing if mom or dad had the trait)

OSOS- Off Spring of Off Spring- this means mom and dad did not have desired traits but grandma or grandfather did. (OSOS animals can pass the desired trait even if not showing if grandma or grandfather had the trait)

Recovery – Waiting period between pregnancies
Descendants – A breeding cycle
Vintage – When a ponie has used all of its descendants
Pairing – Having two specific horses or K-9s breed with each other only
Companion – Having two specific Birds breed with each other only
Cycles – Each bird starts with 12 cycles which means that they can drop 12 nests.
Nesting – Waiting period between nests

Now lets talk about DOS and OS of LE, SE, CE, or DEs.
A DOS of any of the following LE, SE, CE, or DEs must be showing their hidden surprise to pass it into the DOS and OSOS.

Example: I breed 2 DE Sharks together I CAN NOT get the Great White eye from a DOS of the DE unless it is SHOWING the Great White Eye.

This isnt a new concept to Amaretto all LE, SE, CE, and DEs have always worked this way.

Concerning Posh Ponies, the non posh offspring of Amaretto Posh Ponies do NOT have an increased chance of producing Amaretto Posh Ponies.

Its always a good idea to educate yourself on the truth and learn the ins and outs of Amaretto that is why we have a whole school dedicated to just that! So go check out the ARU if you can! This is Ava over and out! Happy Breeding everyone!
