I’M SEEING SPOTS!

The Appaloosa is an American horse breed best known for its colorful spotted coat pattern. In North America, the Nez Perce people of what today is the United States Pacific Northwest developed the original American breed. Settlers once referred to these spotted horses as the “Palouse horse”, possibly after the Palouse River, which ran through the heart of Nez Perce country. Gradually, the name evolved into “Appaloosa”.

Today, the Appaloosa is one of the most popular breeds in the United States; it was named the official state horse of Idaho in 1975. Appaloosas have been used in many movies; an Appaloosa is the mascot for the Florida State Seminoles. Appaloosa bloodlines have influenced other horse breeds, including the Pony of the Americas, the Nez Perce Horse, and several gaited horse breeds.

When Amaretto began waaaay back in September of 2010, they released their first set of starter horses, which included the Appaloosa in four colors. Like other starters, they each came with possible hidden coats and traits. The hidden coats/traits might or might not be Non-Starter. The Appaloosa coat can be passed on.

Beginning June 5, 2012 to July 4,2012 any bundle dropped from the breeding of any 2 Appaloosa horses had the chance at being an Amaretto Appaloosa Showhorse. The Showhorse coat could not pass, but the royalty eye DOES pass.

Appaloosas were also used in making Twist horses, which combined the breeding of two amaretto horse coats. From February 5, 2014 until March 5, 2014 you could breed any color of Shetland and any color of Appaloosa together for the chance at one of these Shetaloosa Coats.

The next big surprise from Amaretto was Crazed coats! From March 5, 2015 until April 5, 2015 you could breed any color Appaloosa horses together for the chance of getting one of the Crazed Coat Appaloosa. The Crazed Coat Appaloosa DOES have the ability to pass. The End of the Rainbow Eye DOES have the ability to pass.

After the Crazed, came the Craved! Starting July 1, 2019 until July 31, 2019, if you bred any of the following horses breeds:
Tangerine Crazed Coat Appaloosa, Berry Blue Crazed Coat Roan, Lemon Lime Crazed Coat Pinto, Perfect Peach Martini Crazed Coat Saddlebred or Plum Pie Crazed Coat Perlino, you could get a new Craved coat, one of which was the Craved Greek Key Tangerine Appaloosa. the coat CAN be passed.

The Appaloosa starter coat has been put “Out to Pasture” which means none will come in any starter, breeder or rancher packs sold at the store, but there are still Appaloosas out there being bred

Always Know What’s Happening With Amaretto!

Happy Hump Day Fellow Breeders!

Amaretto prides itself on keeping their breeders informed. However, very recently I’ve heard comments like, “I didn’t know about that!” or “I never got the notice!” Therefore, today I would like to discuss ways to stay in the know about Amaretto.

The first thing you should always do is check archived notices, especially if you have notices turned off. To do that, you will need to go to the Group Profile. Group profiles can be navigated to by pulling up your ‘Groups’ listing, clicking on the group to highlight and then clicking on ‘Info’ from the buttons on the right side of the box.

To get to the Group Profile from the chat group, click on the ‘Show this group’s profile’ icon at the top of the box. When you do this, the Group Profile box will pop up.

Once you get the Group Profile you will select ‘Notices’ from the top and there you will see all the notices within the last 14 days. Click on a notice to see its text; if there is an attached object, click Open Attachment to take a copy of it into your inventory.

Another place to get information is the Amaretto Breedables Social Network: http://www.amarettobreedables.com

From here you can link to the Customer Connection. Everything about new updates, LE/SE/CE/DE releases, new traits and monthly breedings will be published here. A group notice will be sent in-world, via ALL groups, with a link to the posting. Plus, all past posts are archived and searchable!

Lastly, there is the Amaretto Ranch Breedables facebook page and Amaretto Breedables twitter page. EVERY publication made to the Customer Connection is promptly posted on facebook and twitter. https://www.facebook.com/AmarettoRanch & https://twitter.com/AmarettoRanch

So now, you never have to miss any Amaretto information!

Until next time…HAPPY BREEDING!

Slurl ME!

I have been in Secondlife for over 10 years, and its always good to learn how to do something new!

It occurred to me earlier today that we do have some community members that do not know how to make a slurl!

SLurls and landmarks serve the same purpose. The main difference is that a SLurl is simply a text link, while a landmark is an inventory item type which can only be used inside of SL.

You can post a slurl in spam, in note card, or even an private message! If a Amaretto CSR ever answers your ticket with the reply please send me a slurl, I want you guys to be ready!

How to use and make SLurls
To use an existing SLurl:

Click this example SLurl.https://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Here
On the page it takes you to, click Visit this location to open it in Second Life.

To make a new SLurl:

Move your avatar to where you want to create the SLurl.
Click the place name in the location bar (near the top of the Viewer window) to convert it to a SLurl. It’ll look like http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Here/128/128/44.

Right-click and Copy the SLurl while it’s selected, or use Ctrl+V.

Paste the SLurl where you want it.

Alternatively, you can also use the WORLD MAP to get SLurls:

Select World menu > World Map.
Click Copy SLurl.

You can also enter another place on the map, then click Copy SLurl to get a remote SLurl.

Converting a landmark to a SLurl (and vice-versa)
To convert a landmark to a SLurl:

Select Me > Places.
Right-click a landmark and select Copy SLurl.
Paste the Slurl where you want it.
To convert a SLurl to a landmark:

Click or otherwise use the SLurl to get to its location.
Select World > Landmark This Place. The landmark is saved to your inventory.

So this is a great secondlife tip i use all the time! Hope this helps some of you guys that didnt know how to make a slurl. Happy breeding everyone this is Ava over and out!

Sprinkled Glazed anyone?

Hey everyone its another manic Monday! I wanted to end this month on a high note and shine a spotlight on this months awesome sweet craved! If you missed it the month of March was super sweet!

Take a look at these Craved Sprinkled Glazed horses!

Craved Sprinkled Glazed Cocoa Lipizzan


Craved Sprinkled Glazed Mocha Akhal-teke


Craved Sprinkled Glazed Chocolate American Miniature


Craved Sprinkled Glazed Chocolate Rabicano

If you bred together in any combination the following horses in the month of March:
Akhal-Teke Mocha
Chocolate Rabicano
Cocoa Lipizzan
Chocolate American Miniature

then you had a chance to make one of these Craved Sprinkled Glazed! Remember the Craved DO have the ability to pass their coat! I can think of a few different traits to put on these horses.

If you didn’t get to get in on Marchs round of Craved be sure to get in Aprils!

Happy breeding everyone! This is Ava over and out!

Beautiful Brandings

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

Today the spotlight is shining on the Brandings trait for our horses!

The branding trait comes from breeding “Starter Coats” together or one starter with any other horse and CAN be passed on with the exception of the Amaretto Branding which is limited to the Show Horse only and can NOT pass on.

You could also get a Null Branding – a Null trait is an “Invisible trait”, a placeholder. These placeholders were implemented as a way to allow the breeder to have a maximum trait horse but still look the way they want it to look.

Additionally we have some Random Brandings as shown below. Please note that these brandings CAN be passed on with the exception of the Amaretto Branding.

The Amaretto Branding is limited to the Show Horse only and can NOT pass on.

For more information and a closer look at these brandings check them out on the website at https://horse.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=Branding

Until next time this Snookie hoping you have an amazing weekend.  Stay safe and Happy Breeding!

We Appreciate You

In these trying times it is good to remember the people who do their best to make our lives run a little easier, who go into public service, who instruct and protect us, and bring a little brightness into our lives. From firefighters and policemen, teachers and stay at home parents, to dentists, artists, and even chefs, please remember to show your appreciation by saying Thank You.

To show their appreciation for these often unsung heroes Amaretto brought out the Appreciation Eyes. Starting March 1, 2014, the first of the new Appreciation Eyes were born onto the grid, promoting appreciation for something new each month. These eyes could drop randomly every month from any breeding from the 4.0 horses and higher, starting with the Medical Appreciation eye and ending with the Engineer Appreciation eye in Feb 2015. These eyes are traited and Can be passed on. Which one is your favorite?

Gold Reins!

Hey everyone! Hope that everyone is staying happy and healthy! I know its crazy out there!
I wanted to show off the newest horse trait to hit the grid!

Gold Reins!

I love these! How do you get one? Well by breeding any 2020 Hullabazoo – Amaretto Gone Wild! Thats right anytime you breed a 2020 Hullabazoo – Amaretto Gone Wild horse with any other horse you have the chance to get the Gold Reins!

These Gold Reins DO have the ability to pass!

You can check out all the other Reins here:

At the beginning of the hunt, a notecard giver will be available to give you hunt location SLURLS and hints to finding the hidden prims.

DONATION ARE NEEDED!
Speaking of our hunt, you may or may not know that all of our AMOC activities are generated solely by donations. Without the generosity of breeders like YOU, our hunts would not be possible! We sincerely appreciate any unused bundles, kennels, nests and/or baskets.

A current list of all donation boxes can be found here: https://www.theamarettofamily.com/threads/donation-box-locations.17/
