Manes and Tails!!

Happy February everyone!!

Today I want to spotlight the different Mane & Tail traits for our horses!

Let’s talk about the Mane trait first. The Mane trait comes from breeding “Starter Coats” together or one starter with any other horse. Please note that the Mane trait CAN be passed on.

Now let’s check out the Tail trait. The Tail trait comes from breeding “Starter Coats” together or one starter with any other horse. Please note that the Tail trait CAN be passed on.

The Roach Mane and Pinned Tail came out with Version 5.0 on September 3, 2014.

For a better look at these traits check them out on the wiki https://horse.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=Mane_%26_Tail

With the 3.5 update the Wild Hair trait was added!! This trait provides the ability for a horse to acquire the mane/tail from other horses. This trait is like other hidden traits in that whichever one your horse has is the one that it can pass. The Wild Hair trait comes from breeding “Starter Coats” together or one starter with any other horse and the Wild Hair trait CAN be passed on!

If you would like to see some of the Wild Hairs that the community has shared you can check them out here. https://www.theamarettofamily.com/forums/wild-hairs.39/ You can also share a photo of yours if you don’t see it there!

Till next time this is Snookie hoping you have a great weekend and a terrific Saturday!

Happy Breeding!!

Save Those Receipts

I Need My Receipt?

Have you ever gone shopping, lost an item, or gotten the wrong thing, or even had your new item be broken? What’s the first thing the store asks for? Do you have your receipt? They need the record of your purchase, what it was, and the date and price paid. Well when you file a ticket with Amaretto, they need the same thing. In this case it would be called the transaction history. You can find it by going to your transaction history page on your SL account and checking the date of the purchase, then copy/paste that info to the ticket.

Now, the issue of how long SL keeps transaction history. For basic accounts it is 30 days, for premium accounts, 3 months. What to do what to do? You can download the information to a spreadsheet each month, or copy/paste important purchase info to a notecard inworld. When buying food in bulk, or LEs/DEs/SEs/CEs that you are saving for later birth for instance, make a copy of the purchase from your transaction page, just in case something drastic happens later on. This is what it would look like:

323b27a1

Destination: Ancient Biscuit
Payment
Region: Amaretto Ranch K9s
Description: Special Edition Fall 2013 K-9 (Vendor)

L$595

This kind of information can really help when filing a ticket after the 30 days have passed, because it’s always a good thing to have a record of purchases you can always access.

Super Mix vs Jumbo Mix Pack!!!

Hey guys welcome to Thirsty Thursday! I hope everyone had a SUPER weekend! Speaking of super, today I wanted to take a moment to explain the difference between the Super Mix Pack and the Jumbo Mix Pack. A Super Mix Pack is 5 Breedable 5x Food & 5 5x Salt Licks. These have 5x the servings (2,500 servings) as a regular Breedable Food & Salt. The cost of a Super Mix Pack is 5,850 LS. Do not confuse a Super Mix Pack with the Jumbo Mix pack which is the same price but has 25 Breedable Food (500 servings) & 25 Salt Licks (500 servings).

What is the advantage of a Super Mix Pack vs a Jumbo Mix pack?
Well its the same amount of food just in less prims. Remember one food out of the Super Mix pack will last 5 xs longer than a food from a Jumbo Mix Pack.

We have clearly marked the Super Mix Pack food to look different than any other food it has a 5xs stamp on the food as well as the salt.

If you have questions about any of the Amaretto Horse products you can check out the Product Price List:
http://wiki.amarettobreedables.com/index.php?title=Product_Price_List

So when you are buying mix packs please be sure you buy the one you want because there are no refunds or exchanges on no transfer items!!!

Hope this will help clear up the confusion.

Have a Super week! Until next time…this is Ava and out!

Breeder Food vs Pet Food

Happy Hump Day Fellow Breeders!

Today’s connection is an educational lesson to new breeders who may be experiencing some confusion as to which food to use with their breedable. Lately, there have been several instances where, for whatever reason, they’ve started their newly birthed horse, K-9 or Barnyard Bird/Duck on pet food. Then, around 6-7 days old, changed over to breeder food and wondered why “eaten pet food” was showing on the hover text.

The reason being, if you initially put a horse, K-9 or Barnyard Bird/Duck on pet food, it will take a full 7 days on breeder food for the effects of the pet food to wear off. Please note: This applies only to horses, K-9s and Barnyard Birds/Ducks. Ponie Pals do not have pet food.

How they differ: Breeder Food on the right, Pet Food on the left.

During this time, your horse, K-9 or Barnyard Bird/Duck will not gain fervor, heat or vigor. So, essentially, you have delayed your breeding availability. Therefore, it is suggested, that any animal you intend to breed should never be given pet food.

If, at any time, you experience a breedable that does not seem to be eating at all, please try the following tricks before filing a ticket.

  1. Re-rez (this usually fixes 99% of the issues)
  2. If the land is set to a group, are the breedable and food set to that group?
  3. If the land isn’t set to a group, are the breedable and food set to the same group as each other?
  4. Check to see if the breedable is set to the type of food out (under more stats)
  5. Re-set home position.
  6. Make sure the home position is set within range of the food (default range is 5 meters)

For horses or K-9s, sometimes giving them a Horsey Snack or K-9 Treat will help them start to eat so you may, also, want to try this. Remember your horses, K-9s and Birds/Ducks only eat once every 43 minutes so you may not notice a change immediately, be patient. It takes 3 days for a horse or K-9s to reach 100% hunger, and 4 days for a Bird/Duck to reach 0% hardiness.

Additionally, if you ever have an issue with ANY of your breedables, the handy-dandy Wiki is available to answer your questions. You can find them at the following links.

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
