Breedable Spotlight: Anubis Horse & K-9

Happy Hump Day Fellow Breeders

This is the second in a series of Connections where I’ll tell you a little bit about some specific breedables and what inspired their creation. Today, I’m spotlighting the Anubis Horse & K-9.

What is Anubis?

Anubis is the Greek name of a god associated one of the most frequently represented deities in ancient Egyptian art. Usually depicted, standing or kneeling, as a canine or a man with a canine head, ears pointed. He was associated with mummification and considered a protector of graves and cemeteries.

Anubis was depicted in black, a color that symbolized regeneration, life, and the discoloration of the corpse after embalming. Being the color of the fertile silt of the River Nile, to Egyptians, black, also, symbolized fertility and the possibility of rebirth in the afterlife. Anubis’ female counterpart is Anput.

Amaretto has two breedables that pay homage to the great Anubis.

Haven Horse – Anubis

Amaretto Breedables offers a reward system called Horse Haven. When you send your Horse to Horse Haven you will receive a number of points based on the number of traits and age for a particular Horse. Once you have accumulated enough points, you can use these points to purchase an array of items from the Horse Haven Vendor such as Pet Food, Healing Kits and our unique Horse Haven Horses.

On Tuesday, July 17, 2012, we added Haven Horse – Anubis to the Horse Haven vendor. It comes in random gender with beautiful Egyptian Gold eyes.

The Haven Horse – Anubis are NOT able to pass their coats, but, the Egyptian Gold eye DOES have the ability to pass.

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

The non-Charmed offspring of a Haven Horse do NOT have an increased chance of producing a Charmed Horse.

Enchanted K-9 – Anubis

Enchanted K-9s are very special K-9s that can be born at random from ANY K-9 breeding combination.

https://k9.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=Enchanted_Anubis

Enchanted K-9s are NOT able to pass their coats, eyes or collars. However, you could get extremely lucky and birth another Enchanted K-9.

When you breed an Enchanted K-9 (whether it is with another Enchanted K-9 or any other K-9) you DO have an increased chance at receiving another random Enchanted K-9.

The non-Enchanted offspring of Enchanted K-9s do NOT have an increased chance of producing Enchanted K-9s.

Other Egyptian Inspired Horse Traits

Ankh Branding – Out to Pasture

Eye of Horus – Albino Eye

Egyptian Eyes – All NEW with the v6.01 update

Blanco’s

Hey everyone 

Today I wanted to take a moment to talk to you about Blanco K9s!!
What is a blanco? Well Blanco’s are K-9s that come from breeding two K-9s of the same color coats together. For example, breeding two Tan Tri-Color Beagles together could produce a Blanco Beagle.

That was all from me today.

Cold? Need a blanket?

Hello Amaretto! I hope that everyone is having a wonderful day! Tomorrow marks the first day of summer! WOOT!!

So there are a few things that I still need to shine a spot light on that was hiding in 6.01 and one of them is the Blanket trait!

Take a look at this Celtic Knot and Mosaic blanket!

These blankets do have the ability to pass on, there is a catch you can not at this time combine a saddle and a blanket you can only have one or the other.

The Blanket trait is one of many exciting possible traits that can come from breeding “Starter Horses”.

You can have a chance at one of these exciting Blanket traits by breeding any horse with a starter horse or by breeding together two starter horses.

There are a few more exciting things that I still have to spotlight! This is Ava over and out! Happy breeding everyone!

Cheers!

Happy Hump Day Fellow Breeders

According to my calendar, today is another one of those obscure, nonsensical holidays: National Martini Day! Whether you drink or not, everyone has heard of this famous cocktail.

“I never go jogging, it makes me spill my martini.” – George Burns

The martini was originally called “The Martinez,” named after the California Gold Rush town of Martinez, where it was invented. Back then, martinis were made with wine, gin, and an olive. Today, a traditional martini consists of gin and vermouth with some ice and an olive or lemon twist. Many other exciting flavors have evolved such as the cosmopolitan, chocolatini or appletini.

I do have to ask though…do you prefer yours dry, dirty, shaken, or stirred?

Fictional spy 007™️, James Bond, always asks for his vodka martini to be “shaken, not stirred.” And, so can you with the help of Amaretto; even if you’re a teetotaler!

Just sit back and enjoy the Shaken not Stirred horse eye!

This refreshing eye hit the grid between December 5, 2013 and January 5, 2014 when Amaretto threw in a TWIST. By breeding any color of Pinto and any color of Palomino together, you had the chance at an all new Pintomino coat.

Each new Pintomino came with the Shaken not Stirred eye. The best part is the coat and the eye DOES have the ability to pass!

Even horses love cocktails!
Let’s not forget that Amaretto has a special consumable for your horse called the Amaretto Cocktail. This one time use cocktail will increase energy, happiness and fervor by 5% and decrease hunger and thirst by 5%. Even I’d drink to that!

So, take a moment to relax while sipping on a martini*, by breeding the Shaken not Stirred eye, or by treating your horse to a cocktail consumable and start feeling like the international spy of mystery that you are!

Until next time…Cheers and Happy Breeding! 🍸

*Always drink responsibly!

G.P.S.?

Hello everyone its a Terrific Tuesday here at Amaretto! I wanted to take a few moments to talk to you guys about something brand new in the new 6.01 Update!

Did you know that there is a brand new horse G.P.S.?

Thats right its the Global Pony Settings Weather Vane!

The GPS is super handy and helpful. It can change all your settings on your breedables on the sim with just one click. Not only is the GPS great on your breeding sim, but also at the markets. Most markets want you to make sure that movement, animations, and sounds are all off to help keep down lag and the GPS is the answer. You can use the GPS at the markets as it will only set any breedable that you own!!

The Amaretto G.P.S. (Global Pony Settings) is a tool that will change the settings on all your Horses on one sim all at one time!!

  1. Click the G.P.S. Updater.
  2. Pick your Settings one at a time.
    Movement
    Animations
    Text
    Sounds
    Range
    Home
  3. Hit Activate

After hitting activate your Horses on the sim will all change to the same settings as you chose on the G.P.S.

The new Global Pony Settings Weather Vane, is available at any Amaretto Store!
Well that is it for today this is Ava over and out! Happy Breeding Everyone!
