Barnyard Bird Leg Colors!

Hey Everyone!

So I wanted to share with you all some awesome funky leg color traits you can get in the barnyard birds.

These are all so adorable and match all sorts of different combinations of traits to make many different projects possible.

The Leg Color trait comes from breeding “Starter Breeds” together or 1 starter with any other bird. Please note that this trait CAN be passed on.

Wiki Link HERE

The Barnyard Birds have so many different traits that can match these leg colors so take a look at that wiki link above and check out all the amazing birds!

That’s all from me today folks.

Have an awesome rest of your Sunday and see you all in the groups!

How cute is that face!

Hello everyone Happy Saturday!!  I hope your weekend is off to an awesome start!!  Today I want to shine the spotlight on the Face Markings trait for our Ponie Pals!!

The Face Markings trait comes from breeding “Starter Style” together or one starter with any other Ponie.

From December 14, 2017 to Wednesday December 28, 2017 Amaretto celebrated with 2017 Christmas Edition ponies! These ponies were hiding Icicle & Winter Snowflake Face Markings!

Spring Editions were available from March 20th, 2018 to Tuesday April 3, 2018! Hiding inside these Spring Editions was the Daisy & Butterfly Face Marking!

Summer Editions were available from August 9, 2018 to Friday August 24, 2018! Hiding inside these Summer Editions was the Sol and Crescent Face Marking!!

On Thursday, November 22 any basket dropped could have the possibility to randomly get a new face marking Falling Leaves!

On March 9th 2019 Amaretto celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with 2019 Deluxe Edition Luck of the Irish animals that you could purchase until March 22nd, 2019. These Horses were hiding the Clover face marking!

On Sept 19th, 2019 Amaretto released 2019 International Day of Peace animals, hiding in the ponie was the Peace Face Marking!

Please note that these Face Markings CAN be passed on.

For more information and a closer look check them out on the wiki at https://ponie.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=Ponie_Face_Markings

Until next time this is Snookie hoping you have a great weekend!

Happy Breeding!!

Where Did We Get Wings?

Ever wonder how we came to have wings on the horses? The Wing trait came from the Limited Edition Fall Fantasy Horses that Amaretto released in September 2012. These great looking limited editions had the ability to pass their wings, the Campfire Ash, Cornucopia, Autumn Leaves, First Frost, Ice Wine, Indian Corn, Thick Fog, Pumpkin, and Warm Cider. This was so long ago that LEs could still have any of the mane and tail traits, so if you were lucky enough to get a long long you were sitting pretty! They also passed the Fierce Mist eye.

https://horse.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=2012_Limited_Edition_Fall_Fantasy_Horses

The very next month Amaretto announced that by breeding any of the Fall Fantasy horses to two specific Haven horses you could get two brand new wings. By breeding the Fall Fantasy to the Memorable Haven horse, you could get the blizzard wing, and by breeding them to the Darkness Haven horse you could get the nightfall wing. Many people use one of these wings for their black or white trait horses, and I think the Fierce Mist eye could be used for either one.

From these amazing LEs came the 20th trait, the wing, which added to the many possibilities for making even more amazing horses! What’s YOUR favorite wing?

Headless Horse Eyes!

Hello everyone! Today is Thursday yay! Means its almost FRIYAY!!!
Also this is the last chance and call for you to go get your Armistice Day Editions!

I was calling an auction last night and there was a eye on the panel that some of you guys have never seen before so I thought I would showcase this eye so you guys can check it out!

This is the mysterious Headless Horse eye!

This eye has the ability to come from any of the following:
2019 Limited Edition – Headless Horse
2019 Special Edition – Headless Hound
2019 Deluxe Edition – Headless Ponie

I really like the look of this eye and I think you guys do to! These Headless Horse eyes DO have the ability to pass! What kind of creepy projects will you incorporate this eye into? Well everyone this is Ava over and out. Happy Breeding!

Happy World Kindness Day!

It’s another hump day fellow breeders and, what a great Wednesday this is, as it’s World Kindness Day!

World Kindness Day is an international holiday that was formed in 1998, to promote kindness throughout the world and is observed annually on November 13 as part of the World Kindness Movement. The goal is to champion kindness in society by highlighting good deeds in the community; to focus on the positive power and the common thread of kindness which binds us.

Let the spread of kindness be infectious! Studies show that when others observe kindness in action they are more likely to carry out an act of kindness, too. Pledge to join together to build a kinder and more compassionate world. #KindnessStartsWithOne

“THE IDEALS WHICH HAVE LIGHTED MY WAY, AND TIME AFTER TIME HAVE GIVEN ME NEW COURAGE TO FACE LIFE CHEERFULLY, HAVE BEEN KINDNESS, BEAUTY, AND TRUTH”

Hello everyone we made it to another Monday! Well this is not just any Monday! Today is Veterans/Armistice Day!

So lets take a moment to remember all of those who have served in the line of duty fighting for their beliefs, despite where you are from this is one holiday that we can all relate to. If you have personal served in the military Amaretto wants to Thank You for your service!

On a lighter note I did want to show off a new trait for the horses, the Green Reins!

Where did Green Reins come from? Well any breeding of the 2019 Limited Edition – Creepy Clown or 2019 Limited Edition – Headless Horse you had a chance to get the Green Bridle!

The Green Bridle does have the ability to pass!

I cant wait to start seeing this new trait on your projects! Happy breeding everyone this is Ava over and out!

Year of the Horse!

Hey everyone! It’s a lazy cold Sunday here.
Today I wanted to show you guys a Charmed horse that you can still receive at random by any breeding of Amaretto horses.
When the version 5.0 Horse update came out on September 3, 2014 the ability to receive this exciting new Charmed Year of the Horse was also added!
Charmed Horses are very special horses that can be born at random from ANY horse breeding combination.

Charmed Horses are NOT able to pass their coats. However, you could get extremely lucky and birth another Charmed Horse.

When you breed a Charmed Horse (whether it is with another Charmed Horse or any other horse) you DO have an increased chance at receiving another random Charmed Horse.

The non-Charmed offspring of Charmed Horses do NOT have an increased chance of producing Charmed Horses.

Take a look at this beauty!!!

You can read all about it and see more pictures here:

That means everyone has at getting a charmed horse.

Good luck and happy breeding everyone!

Want to show off your project?

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope your weekend is off to a great start!

There have been a lot of questions lately regarding how to get your project Horse, K-9, Bird (chicken/duck) or Ponie on the AMOC Facebook page for all the world to see! So today we are going to shine the spotlight on YOUR creations and just how to do that!

Do you have a special project that you have been working on and you would like to share it with your fellow breeders?

Did you know that you can submit that project/design that you have been working on to AMOC to be displayed in one of the many designer albums on the AMOC facebook page? Well you can! So how do you go about doing that?

1st decide on your base (coat, breed or style) eyes, mane & tail

2nd decide on what you want to use for the designer traits, for example:
Coat/Hair Hues, Wings, Horns, Saddles, Bridles, Reins, Headpieces, Ear Tips, Brandings, Socks, Hoofs, Looney Legs, Wild Hairs, Beaks, Legs, Wings, Noses, Paw Warmers, Dipped ears,Wings, Horns, Style, etc.

Wow so many to choose from and let’s face it that is where the fun comes in right? You decide what you want and how  you want your completed project to look like!  Now that you have done all that it’s time to submit your project to AMOC!

How to submit to AMOC:

Create a notecard and name it your creation name, avatar name & date then on the inside of the notecard list the information about your project/creation, for example:

My Creation by
My Avatar
06/15/19
Horse/K9/Bird/Ponie Stats
Parents Stats

Then list which stats you would like to see on your completed creation/project. It does NOT have to be completed to submit. You can always resubmit an update when you have completed your project.

Please do not send updates to add wing, horn and/or saddle styles to the existing designs. Styles will be included in your future submissions.

Parents full stats (including UUIDs) MUST be sent in with the designer.

Next take a picture of the breedable as it currently looks (you can always submit an updated picture at a later date). Make sure the picture is full perm and drag it into the notecard.

Now drop the notecard into the collection box just inside the AMOC Headquarters http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/A.R.U.%20and%20Events/100/157/21

Please do not send notecards to AMOC officers — all notecards/submissions must be put in the AMOC mailbox only.  Notecards that are put in any other mailbox will be deleted.

Your creation will be posted as soon as we verify that there has not already been a similar project previously submitted. If there is already a similar project we will verify the date the picture was taken and that will determine the creator (think of the picture as your copyright)!!

You will only be notified in-world if there is a question about your design. Otherwise, you should be able to find your submission, within a week, on the AMOC facebook page.

You can also see these directions on the website at https://www.theamarettofamily.com/index.php?/topic/19-amoc-designer-submission-procedure/

You can take a look at some of the many AMOC certified designers that have been submitted in the past from Festive Traits, Coloring Book, Sweet Treats, Reds Reds & more Reds and so many more right here https://www.facebook.com/pg/AMOCoalition/photos/?tab=albums

We can’t wait to see your designer horses, k-9s, birds & ponies!!

Until next time this is Snookie hoping you have a fun weekend.

Happy Breeding!

Suggestions and Ideas

Did you ever think to yourself, “I have so many good ideas for Amaretto breedables”, and wonder who to tell? You can tell Amaretto staff! Just put your ideas on a notecard and drop it in the mailbox at any Amaretto food store. Of course, if it gets used it may not happen for awhile, because they have so many ideas of their own.

And now for the ultimate suggestion. You can turn in your own idea for a designer LE!! That’s right, Amaretto is again having the Breeder Designer LE contest, where a breeder is the creator of a brand new LE. You can turn in an idea, or even create a picture of one using gimp, photoshop, paint, etc. It has to be an original idea, not a picture from the internet, musn’t break SL TOS, must not be Trademarked or Copyrighted designs, must be within good taste and not offensive, and you are only allowed to submit one design per avatar, only designs from active breeders will be accepted, no alts please. The design has to use a current horse shape that Amaretto has, so no 6 legged horses lol. You have the rest of November to think of a great idea and turn it in on this site, and voting will begin in December https://amarettobreedables.com/forums/29/submit-your-limited-edition-designs-here

Last year’s winner was our own Blush Topaz with her amazing Asian Steampunk design. From her ideas they created two awesome Steampunk LEs that gave the eyes, Midori and Mandarin,and brand new saddles, Jin se and Hong se!

So gather all those ideas and suggestions you’ve had all year long and go to the website. Maybe this year the winner could be YOU!
