Time for Back to School!

Happy Hump Day Fellow Breeders!

As summer draws to a close, its time for a lot of us to start making real life back to school preparations. Now is a great time to think of going back to school in Second Life too!

Amaretto offers an assortment of classes geared toward helping you be a successful breeder through their Amaretto Ranch University Program.

Classes include Horses, K9s, Birds (Chickens & Ducks), and Ponies. They are very informative and typically last no longer than 15-20 minutes.

Class times are convenient for your busy schedule. You can find the monthly calendar here: https://amarettoranchuniversity.com/cal.html

The classroom is located in the Education Building on the A.R.U. and Events sim. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/A.R.U.%20and%20Events/60/138/22

While you’re making plans to go back to school, why not include these awesome traits in your breeding projects.

See you in class!

Until next time…Happy Breeding!

Playing Fetch With You Puppy

How do i play fetch with my Amaretto dog?

First select a dog to use, make sure its awake, then turn on movement. If you don’t already have a hud, click the dog menu/help/get HUD. After attaching the HUD, click dog menu/ HUD then connect on the hud. It should change to connected and the dog’s name will appear over the connected part

Click the Get Ball button – This will send a ball to your objects
Wear the Ball – it will attach to your hand
Click Ball to set range for the distance at which the ball will be thrown. You can chose from 20, 40, 60, or 100 meters. Make sure you dont throw it off your own land
Click the Fetch button on your HUD
You will see the mouse look button at the bottom of your screen click that to go into mouse look
Aim where you want to throw the ball and left click your mouse to throw the ball
Your K-9 will run and retrieve the ball and bring it back to you as you will see it back in your hand and you can throw it again and again while your K-9 retrieves it for you.

One of the benefits of playing fetch or even just attaching the dog to the HUD is that they receive an incremental boost in happiness. When you are done playing with that K9 just click disconnect, and remember to put the dog back by it’s food and reset home

Why my horse isnt happy?

Ava why isn’t my horse gaining fervor?? I get this question at least once a day! So i wanted to go over a few reason why this may not be happening!

why

The number one culprit is that your horse is not at least 75% happy! If a horses happiness is under 75% it will not gain fervor.
So why might your horse not be over 75% happy?? Lets go through the check list.

Is there a salt lick out?
Is the salt lick a old salt lick?
Is the salt lick set to the proper group?
Is the horse within range of the salt lick?
Is the horse over 7 days old?
Are scripts turned on?
Is the horse asleep?
Is the horse latest version?
Does the horse say eaten pet food?

These are all the question I ask my self when someone says the horse is not over 75% happiness. If after checking all those things off the list you have some options. You can ride the horse to see if their happiness will rise, you can give it Sugar Cubes this will increase one of your horses happiness by 15%, or give your horse a cocktail this will increase energy, happiness and fervor by 5% and decrease hunger and thirst by 5%.

After all checks and trying these options your horse will still not get over 75% happiness its time to file a ticket and let the pros take a look and see if they can find the issue. A CSR may ask for a slurl to your horse in world so we can come check your settings
How do you get a slurl?
1. Go to where your horses are in world.
2. Open the world map.
3. Click the Copy SLurl button.
4. Use control+v to paste the SLurl in your ticket!
You can file a ticket here:

Its important to know all of these trouble shooting tips if not for you then maybe your breeder friends or someone in the group!Well this is Ava over and out happy breeding everyone!

Golden Glitter Nose!

Hello everyone! We have almost made it to FRIYAY! I know this week has flown by for me. Amaretto has still been busy with our nose to the grind! I wanted to take a few moments to show off a little Golden Glitter!

What am I talking about? Well did you know that if you breed any Filegree Gacha K-9s that you have a chance at getting a Golden Glitter Nose?!

I love this trait!

Remember ANY breeding of a Filigree will give you a chance at getting this shiny nose! You can read up on the Filigree Gachas here: https://amarettobreedables.com/blogs/5/178/new-filigree-gachas

Well until next time this is Ava over and out! Happy breeding everyone!

Never Forget

Greetings Fellow Breeders!

Today, we remember a day that forever changed the United States. The greatest terrorist attack in American history took place on the morning of September 11, 2001, when four planes were hijacked. Two crashed into the World Trade Center, one into the Pentagon, and one into a field in Pennsylvania, after passengers tried to stop the hijackers from using the plane as a weapon.

The attacks killed 2,996 people, injured over 6,000 others, and caused at least $10 billion in infrastructure and property damage.

Following this tragedy, the American people displayed a sense of patriotism and pride for their country and stood united to help their fellow citizens. As a result, a Congressional bill was passed unanimously to proclaim September 11 as Patriot Day.

AMARETTO REMEMBERS

On September 11, 2014, Amaretto released a random drop eye to remember September 11. Horse, K9 and Barnyard Bird breeders had a chance at one of these memorable eyes. These eyes DO have the ability to pass.

We can all observe this day by pausing for a moment of silence to honor those who lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attack.

Until next time…Happy Breeding!
