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!

Designer Breedables

Happy Saturday everyone! Today I want to shine the spotlight on YOU and your creations!

Have you thought about a design for your breedables that you would like to create? Would you like to share that 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, Ear Tips, Brand, Socks, Hoofs, Looney Legs, Wild Hairs, Beaks, Legs, Wings, Nose, Paw Warmers, Dipped ears,Wings, Horns, Style, etc.

Oh my so many to choose from but that is where the fun comes in right? You decide what you want your completed project to have trait wise!

Wow, you have done all that? Great!! Now what to do next.

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

Please list what stats you will want to see on the completed creation/project. It does NOT have to be completed to submit. You can 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

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

So what are you waiting for? We can’t wait to see what you have come up with!

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

Happy Breeding!
