Do you have an awesome breeding project that you want to share?

Happy Saturday everyone! Today I want to shine the spotlight on YOU and your special breeding projects!

Are you working on an awesome project? 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
01/25/2020
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/threads/amoc-designer-submission-procedure.19/

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!

Where Can I Advertise?

People often ask me, “Where can i advertise my Amarettos for sale?”. Here’s a little hint…..NOT in the Amaretto chat groups, just like it says in the group info-NO ADS of ANY kind( including freebies, giveaways, or trading). Where you CAN advertise is in Amaretto Advertising Network. A group joiner for that can be found at the Amaretto food stores.

Once you’ve joined, you can open the group info from your group contacts list, and you will see a tab for Notices. Open this and you see New Notices. When you click that you get a subject line to title your notice and a message box to post what you are trying to sell. You can copy/paste the stats about it, or create your own message to draw people in and let them know what you have. If you have a place for them to see your items don’t forget to include a landmark, if not you can just say to message you if they are interested. You can also put ads in the group for items you are looking for. This is where you can advertise your Amaretto Ranch Breedables ONLY for sale.
NO BREEDABLES UNDER 100L
USE FAIR MARKET PRICING when posting your ads
NO “LEAVING BREEDING OR HAVENING” ADS
MIN 500L AUCTION ADS
NO PRICE DROP AUCTION ADS
FAIR MARKET VALUE PATRON AUCTION ADS ONLY.
The posting limit for this group is 1 notice per 2 hours.
THE MAXIMUM IS 4 ADS PER DAY!

Another place you might look to post For Sale or Wanted ads, is in the market groups you belong to, as many of them allow you to post ads as long as it’s for something at THEIR marketplace. Please be nice and don’t post ads for another venue in the group. You wouldn’t go into Burger King carrying a poster for Macdonalds would you? Well maybe, but it’s a no-no.

Hopefully this has been a help, and Happy Breeding to everyone!

There is no group chat in this group

Who’s Ready For Some Madness?

Happy Hump Day Fellow Breeders!

“Madness?” you ask. Before I answer, first, let me see if any of you are Basketball fans? If you are, then you’ll know what I mean when I say, “March Madness”.

March Madness is the championship playoff for the best of the best and that’s exactly what our next AMOC event is all about. So, join us for our first-ever March Madness Amaretto Showdown!

AMOC group members will eliminate the competition by voting for the top three (3) best trend-setters. So bring out your prized breedables and show us what you’ve got. This is a great opportunity to showcase your breeding talents! And, as always, you could win some awesome Amaretto prizes!

Let me emphasize that Basketball is just the motif of this contest and in no way limits what you can enter. However, the following are suggested themes:

  • Sports (any sport) professional or collegiate!
  • Spring
  • St. Patrick’s Day
  • Earth Day
  • Other themes will be open for consideration, just let us know what you’d like to enter.

Setup will be Wednesday, March 11th and Thursday, March 12th. The Showdown will run from Friday, March 13th at 10AM (SLT) through Sunday, March 15th at 10AM (SLT).

Mules

Hi all, so I wanted to take a look at some very cute and adorable mules today as they are one of my favorite special surprises!




How do you get a mule you ask? well you can get the Ash, Brass and Sienna Mule from breeding any of the Haven Donkeys that you can buy from any Haven Vendor with Haven Points with any Amaretto horse (NOT another Haven Donkey) to get a chance at getting one of these special Mules!
However the Black Mule came from breeding the 2013 Limited Edition Cinco de Mayo Donkeys with any Amaretto Horse. WIKI LINK HERE
The White Mule came from breeding the 2017 Cinco De Mayo – El Primer Caballer Donkeys with any Amaretto Horse. WIKI LINK HERE

I really love these cute coats!.

It’s almost Monday and the weekend has passed so quickly so I will wish you all a happy start to your week.

Hugs Marku <3

Dipped Tails!!

Hey everyone hope your weekend is off to a wonderful start! Today let’s shine the spotlight on the Amaretto K-9s and the Dipped Tail Trait!!

The Dipped Tail was the 14th trait added to the K-9s!

Amaretto celebrated Valentines Day on Feb 2nd 2019 and released Valentines Edition animals that you could purchase until Feb 15th 2019. There was the a chance that you could get a brand new trait Dipped Tail from any breeding of these 2019 Valentines Day Edition K-9s.

On July 4th, 2019 Amaretto released a random drop the Dipped Tail Liberty!

On October 16th, 2019 our scary Halloween Editions were unleashed! Hiding in these 2019 Halloween Edition was the Dipped Tail Toxic!

Dipped Tails DO have the ability to pass!

For a closer look at any of these awesome dipped tails check them out on the wiki at https://k9.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=Dipped_Tails

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

Happy Breeding!!

BOK BOK! Go to the Head of the Class

When Amaretto introduced the Barnyard Birds in May of 2012, they all came as farm class, which is considered a starter class. Starter birds can hide other traits inside them which you can get by breeding any two starter birds together, or breeding a starter bird with any other bird. The classes have benefits to add to your birds

Jester Class: Jester birds never go below 75% vivacity, which is helpful, as birds need to be at least 85% to gain vigor and to breed. So even if you unexpectedly run out of orange rinds, you won’t have far to go to catch up. This class can pass!

Romeo Class: Romeo birds never go below 50% vigor. Birds need 100% vigor to breed. This class can pass!

Juliet Class: Juliet birds get an extra breeding cycle. Birds come with twelve breeding cycles. Once they have none left they retire and become Senior birds, so an extra will give them thirteen. Stats and text over the bird will say Senior. This class can pass!

Bird of the Line: This is the most amazing class! The benefits of the Bird of the Line Class are your bird
will never sleep!
never go below 100% stamina.
never go below 75% vivacity (Jester Class)
never go below 50% vigor (Romeo Class)
Gets an extra breeding cycle! (Juliet Class)
Bird of the Line also gets any traits from future classes released. Any future class traits will be added to your current Bird of the Line through an update. This is a great trait to breed into your birds and this trait can pass!

What kind of bird class would you like to see next?

Paw Warmer Christmas Plaid!

Hello everyone! I hope that everyone has enjoyed their day! I wanted to continue spot lighting what surprises were hiding in the 2019 Holiday Edition animals!

Well its the pooches turn! Take a look at this brand new Paw Warmer Christmas Plaid!

If you purchased one of the 2019 Special Edition – Amaretto Christmas Caroler Mr. or Mrs. then you have a chance when you breed either to get this brand new Paw Warmer Christmas Plaid!

The Christmas Plaid Paw Warmer DOES have the ability to pass! Keep a eye out for these paw warmers in your k9s! This is Ava over and out! Happy Breeding everyone!
