Dazzle Horses

Hey Everyone!

Today I wanted to take a look at the amazing Dazzle Horses. These horses are absolutely gorgeous and very special.


On September 1, 2015 Amaretto released the Dazzle horses!

On October 7,2016 Amaretto released new starters in version 5.5 there were new hidden Dazzle Horses Ruby, Peridot, Opal, Turquoise, and Pearl Dazzle Horses.

Dazzle Horses can only come by breeding a male and female with Dazzle eyes together.

The Dazzle eyes can be viewed on the wiki at the following links:

http://wiki.amarettobreedables.com/index.php?title=Dazzle_HeartShine_Eyes
http://wiki.amarettobreedables.com/index.php?title=Dazzle_StarShine_Eyes

They do NOT have to be the same Dazzle Eyes to have a chance at getting one of these randomly dropped coats.
The Saddles that come with each amazing Dazzle coat are specific to their coat and they do have the ability to pass. That’s right you heard it correct these beautiful new Saddles DO have the ability to pass!! Dazzle Horses can NOT pass their coat. However breeding a Dazzle Horse with another Dazzle Horse or with any other horse with Dazzle Eyes you will slightly increase your chance for another Dazzle Horse.

So good luck getting one of these awesome horses!

Happy breeding everyone!

Duck Legs!

Hello everyone hope you are all having a great day and enjoying the start of your weekend!

Today I want to shine the spotlight on the awesome leg trait for our ducks.

Duck Legs traits were released hidden inside of starter ducks on October 8, 2018 with the release of version 1.0! The Duck Legs trait comes from breeding “Starter breed” together or one starter with any other Duck.

From October 20, 2018 through Nov 3, 2018 Amaretto celebrated Halloween with the first Duck Collectors Edition, the Bloody leg was hiding in the 2018 Halloween Edition.

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

Silver Glitter Leg was a hidden surprise in the 2019 Filigree Gachas!

Please note that there are currently 10 different Duck Legs available and that these Duck Legs CAN be passed on.

So now it’s time to start putting these legs on your favorite duck and make a new designer duck by adding these awesome legs to all the other duck traits. Not sure what is available? Well check out all the duck traits on the wiki at https://duck.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=Duck_Legs

Until next time this is Snookie saying have a great weekend.

Happy Breeding!!

Percherons

The Percheron is a breed of draft horse that originated in the Huisne river valley in western France, part of the former Perche province from which the breed takes its name. Usually gray or black in color, Percherons are well muscled, and known for their intelligence and willingness to work. They were originally bred for use as war horses. Over time, they began to be used for pulling stagecoaches and later for agriculture and hauling heavy goods. In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, Arabian blood was added to the breed. Exports of Percherons from France to the United States and other countries rose in the late 19th century, and the first purely Percheron stud book was created in France in 1883. In the American traveling circuses of the late 19th century and early 20th century, the Percheron was the most frequently seen draft horse. The Percheron is still used extensively for draft work and, like other draft breeds, it is also used in France for meat production.
Percherons in the United States generally stand between 16.2 and 17.3 hands (66 and 71 inches), average 1,900 pounds, and their top weight is around 2,600 pounds . They are generally gray or black in coloring, although the American registry also allows the registration of roan, bay and chestnut horses.

When the version 4.0 Horse update came out on September 9, 2013 these exciting new coats were hidden in new starters. The Apricot Dapple Percheron, Black Dapple Percheron, Brown Dapple Percheron, Brown and Grey Dapple Percheron, Dark Brown Dapple Percheron and Silver Dapple Percheron are one set of many exciting possible Non-Starter coats that can come from breeding “Starter Horses”.

Amaretto also used the Percheron horses to make a Twist, the Dapple Saddlebred. From November 5, 2014 until December 5, 2014 you could breed any color Amaretto Saddlebred and any color Percheron together for the chance at one of the Dapple Saddlebred Coats. The coat and eye CAN pass. You can see these coats on the wiki here

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

From April 5, 2016 until May 4, 2016 you could breed any color Percheron horses together for the chance of getting one of the Crazed Percheron. No other qualifications necessary, just has to be 2 Percherons. The coat and eye CAN pass. You can see these great looking colorful coats on the wiki here

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

And of course there is the Albino Percheron, which comes from breeding full siblings. In order for a chance at an Albino Percheron one of these full siblings MUST BE a Percheron. The Albino Percheron coat does NOT pass, however, breeding an Albino Percheron with it’s sibling does slightly increase your chance for another Albino or Albino Percheron.

Hungry Hungry Amarettos!

Hey guys its Ava! I hope everyone is enjoyig this Thursday!

So with all the craziness that has been in sl the past couple of days I wanted to talk to you about sick Horses, K-9s, Barnyard Birds, and Ponies!

Ive seen a few people saying that their horses aren’t eating, I know there are several breedable market sims that have had known issues. I wanted to go over a few simple checks to make sure that all your settings are correct. I know some of you have been breeding Amaretto for years and know everything there is to know, but sometimes its only a setting that will keep your breedable from eating,

So here is Ava’s check list for a breedable that is not eating:

1. Are scripts turned on?
2. Is the food set to All, Owner Only, or Group?
3. Is the breedable set to to correct food breedable or pet?
4 Is the food within range?
5. Is my breedable frozen or duplicated?
6. Is my food duplicated? (check for a uuid in the description field of the food)
7. Did i rerezz the breedable?
8. Is my breedable up to date?

If you go thru all these questions and still can not figure out why your breedable is not eating you should go ahead and file a ticket to have a csr come out. I cant tell you how many times ive went to a breeders and its a simple setting that is keeping their breedable from eating! It can happen even to the seasoned breeder!

If your breedable is sick currently it will take 3 days for them to eat thier way out of sickness, unless you are talking about ponies, ponies must have ponie noodle soup once they have this poine is sick above their head!

So happy breeding and eating everyone!
This is Ava over and out!

Putting Confection Rumors to Rest

Happy Hump Day Fellow Breeders!

Recently, a rumor got started that there were new Confection coats for the horses, in particular, a Gummy Bear coat. The purpose of today’s Connection is to inform you of the facts and put rumors to rest.

First, let’s look at a brief history of the Confection eyes. On January 30, 2012, Amaretto released the 3.2 horse update. Hidden in the new starters for that update were six all-new Confection eyes: Chocolate Cherry, Cotton Candy, Honeycomb, Lollipop, Spun Sugar and Tutti Frutti.*

Confection eyes first appeared in starters from the 3.2 horse update.

Six more confection eyes were added from starters with the 4.0 update on September 9, 2013: Cinnamon Roll, Double Mint, Licorice Roll, Red Velvet, Sprinkled Donut and Sweet Tart.

Six more Confection eyes were hidden in 4.0 update starters.

When Amaretto’s had its 4th Birthday on September 1, 2014, six OOAK Confection Coats were introduced. From those new coats came the Devil’s Food, Hot Fudge Sundae, Lemon Meringue Pie, Pink Cotton Candy, Red Velvet Cake, and Strawberry Shortcake eyes.

Amaretto 4th Birthday OOAKs produced another six Confection eyes!
Shown with their matching Confection coat.

While these OOAK’s did not pass their coats, the eyes were passable. Additionally, at the Birthday party, it was announced that if you bred any of the new or existing Confection eyes together you had a chance to get one of these six Confection coats for your very own!

Shortly thereafter, four more Confection eyes were added to starters, with the release of the 5.0 update on September 13, 2014. These eyes were: Chocolate Eclair, Cookies N Cream, Double Chocolate Cake and Gummy Bears.

Even more Confection eyes hit the grid from 5.0 update starter horses.

And, if that wasn’t enough sweet Confections, four additional Confection eyes were introduced from the new starters for the 6.01 update on April 27, 2019. These were: Banana Split, Caramel Swirl, Cherry Pie and Jelly Beans.

The latest addition to the Confection eyes came from the 6.01 starters.

*Also with the 6.01 update, the Chocolate Cherry, Cotton Candy, Honeycomb and Lollipop eyes were put out to pasture. This only means that those eyes will no longer drop from new starter horses. They can still be used for breeding to try your chance at a Confection Coat.

So, to recap, breeding any of the 26 Confection eyes together will still only give you a chance at one of 6 Confection coats.

Remember, Confection coats drop purely at random, so one eye has no better chance than another and can not predetermine which coat you could receive. Confection horses can NOT pass their coat. However, breeding a Confection horse with another Confection horse or with any other horse with Confection eyes you will slightly increase your chance for another Confection horse.

Don’t believe rumors! Check the facts!

Will new Confection coats be introduced in the future? To quote Ava, “You never know!” 😉

Until next time…Happy Breeding! ♥

HullabaZoo!

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a Terrific Taco Tuesday! I am super excited to announce something to everyone!

In previous years Amaretto had a lot of fun fund raising for lots of different charities and causes, I know how much you guys love to do this and make it a success every time. Its been a while so im super excited to tell you that Amaretto is doing a fund raising again!

This is something that a lot of you have been asking for!

So what charity has Amaretto picked this time? I am pleased to announce that Amaretto will be participating for the first time in the HullabaZoo!

What is HullabaZoo??
HullabaZoo is all about animals and creatures. It’s more than a shopping event and will have classes, a quest, contests, photo ops, parties, and more. Best of all we’re raising money for a great cause! HullabaZoo is an annual event and we would love it to become the BIGGEST creature event of the year – one that you look forward to, get excited about and look forward to it’s return each year!

HullabaZoo isn’t a mainstream fashion event with an “animals” theme so you won’t find zebra-print nails, or paw print T’shirts for human avatars. You will find creature avatars, pets, rideables, props and mods as well as accessories and mods for those creatures.

What charity does HullabaZoo donate to?
Every year HullabaZoo will choose a charity to donate to. Having worked in large and small animal charities over the years it was really important to us that we choose charities that have a proven record of putting the money where it is most needed within their charitable focus. Too many large charities use donated funds to pay bloated salaries or for activities that are contradictory to the charities aims. Too many small charities waste their donations due to incompetence within the organizations. HullabaZoo will scrutinize and choose the charities we donate to very carefully to ensure that all the funds raised by the event go to where they should.

For our inaugural 2020 event we have chosen the Jane Goodall Institute.

Now if you are like me i had to do some research on Jane Goodall Institute, here is a video on this charity
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdYfhPPBt0E

Here is the website for the Jane Goodall Institute:
https://www.janegoodall.org/

I am super excited to be a part of HullabaZoo this year!! I know you guys will be too! The event will start on March 10th at 12 PM SLT!

So keep your eye out for HullabaZoo news! This is Ava over and out!

It’s Time To Get Shady!

Hello to all my fellow Amaretto Breeders!

I hope that everyone has had a wonderful weekend so far and is enjoying their Sunday. 🙂

Today I would like to take a moment to talk about shades in the Barnyard Birds!

Wiki Link Here

On October 28th, 2013 Amaretto released the 2013 Collectors Edition Halloween Barnyard Birds! Any breeding of these 2013 Collectors Edition Halloween Barnyard Birds gave a chance at getting one of the hidden surprises. These surprises were the Shades Slime, Panic, and Pumpkin!

On Monday December 18, 2013 Amaretto released the 2013 Holiday Barnyard Birds! Any breeding of these 2013 Holiday Barnyard Birds gave a chance at getting one of the hidden surprises. These surprises were the Shades Fire and Frost!

On February 9, 2015 Amaretto released the Valentines Day Collectors Edition Barnyard Birds. By breeding these 2015 Valentines Day Collectors Edition together they gave a chance at getting one of the hidden surprises. These surprises were the shades Love and Sunshine!

These traits are one of my favorites in the barnyard birds because it can completely change the look of a breed, for example if you mix a red breed with the slime shade you get a super dark green colour – this is only one of many combinations you can try out.

There is lots of fun to be had with mixing these shades with different breeds to see how they look.

That’s all from me. So get out there, play with some shades and make some unique cool looking birds!

Hugs Marku.

Just look at that Face!

Hello everyone and Happy Saturday!! I hope you all had a great Valentine’s Day!

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 Dec.4, 2018 Amaretto released a second round of Gacha Ponies! Hiding inside these were the Chuckle, Specs and Oopsy Poopsy Face Marking!

Happy Valentine’s Day

It’s Valentine’s Day! Happy February 14th! Chocolate and cards and flowers! Where exactly does the tradition of giving gifts and cards on this particular day come from?

Valentine’s Day flowers began as a tradition in the 17th century, since roses, which represent love in all its forms, were the flowers of choice for the Day. The rose is supposed to be the favorite flower of Venus, the Goddess of Love.
Throughout school, we all gave cards to our classmates, but where did this tradition of Valentine’s Day cards begin? Well, back in 1415, Charles the Duke of Orleans wrote a poem for his wife while imprisoned in the Tower of London on Valentine’s Day. By the 16th century, cards had become so common on Valentine’s Day that several religious leaders preached against them. By the early 19th century, it was the most popular way to show your love on the special day.
What would Valentine’s Day be without chocolate? Well we can thank the Spanish explorers who brought chocolate back to the Old World from the New World in the 17th century. Soon enough the popularity increased in Europe and chocolate, possibly for its aphrodisiac effects, became the candy of choice for the lover’s holiday.

Amaretto brought us Valentine LEs starting in 2011, with a random drop of That’s Love, That’s Amor, That’s Amore and That’s Amour LEs. The coats could not pass.

This began a long tradition of random drops or purchasable Limited Edition Horses, Special Edition K-9s, Collectors Edition Barnyard Birds and Deluxe Edition Ponie Pals. Along with those came other traits in horses like wings, brands, socks, horns, saddles, and ear tips! In K-9s we added new collars, new nose traits, new Paw Warmers, new Dipped Ears, and in 2019 the new Dipped Tail trait. From the Valentine Barnyard birds we got new beaks and legs, the Wing trait, new Shades and in 2019 the Whacky Wattle! The Valentine Ponie Pals gave us wings, and new horns! You can find pictures and information on all these traits on the Wiki
