Hungry Horses and K-9’s

Your Horses and/or K-9’s will eat once every hour. If food is not present their hunger and thirst will rise until it reaches 100% at which time they will get sick, this will take 3 days. A Vaccination can be used to Heal your Horses and K-9’s or they will eat their way out of sickness in approximately 3 days.


Breeder Food is for Horses or K-9’s you wish to breed once they reach 7 days old.

Pet Food is to be used when you do not wish to breed your Horse or K-9’s. If you decide to breed your Horse or K-9 after feeding it Pet Food, it will take 7 days on Breeder Food for the effects of the Pet Food to wear off. If changing from pet to breedable or breedable to pet, remember to set your Horses or K-9’s to that type of food.


1.Rez the food/water within your Horse or K-9’s set range. (a Horse or K-9′s default range is 5 meters)

2.Click the food/water to change options and see remaining %. Options include Owner only, Group only, and All.

Owner only: Will only be consumed by the owners Horses or K-9’s.

Group only: Will only be consumed by Horses or K-9’s in the same group as the food/water is set to.

All: Any Horse or K-9 within range of the food/water will be able to consume it.

Once the food/water has been completely consumed it will disappear.

If you are having issues with your Horse or K-9 not eating please try the following tricks before filing a ticket.

1. Re-rez fixes 99% of the issues.

2. If the land is set to a group, are the K-9’s and food set to that group?

3. If the land isn’t set to a group, are the Horse or K-9 and food set to the same group as each other?

4. Check to see if the Horse or K-9 is set to the type of food out (more stats)

5. Re-set home position.

6. 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 and K-9’s only eat once every 43 minutes so you may not notice a change immediately, be patient it takes 3 days for a K-9 to reach 100% hunger.




Starving K9’s

I have seen a few people sending in tickets about their k9’s not eating and in most cases when I go visit their sim in world I find this is happening in user error.

Currently when you buy kibble it is set to group only you will have to make sure that your k9 and your kibble are set to the same group.

If you don’t want to do this you can change the setting of your food to owner only or all.

To change the settings on your kibble you click on the food, and from the menu you chose the option you want to use. Owner Only, Group Only, or All.

If you are a Phoenix user there is a option in your second life preferences that will make this very easy to do.
Edit > Preferences> Phoenix > Misc > Always rez objects under the land group if possible (make sure this is checked)

If you do this every time you rez things out and you are a member of the land owner group they will be set to that group!

Another thing I have seen is that people have pet kibble and the k9 is set to breedable kibble.

Remember guys
1. Re-rez fixes 99% of the issues.
2. If the land is set to a group, are the K9 and food set to that
3. If the land isn’t set to a group, are the k9 and food set to
the same group as each other?

5. Re-set home position.

Hello Everyone,
I have been watching the group today and i see a few of you do have a few questions one of them is

When will the pairing be fixed? Answer: Although I cannot give you a date to this I will say it will be very soon we are working hard to correct the issues with the pairing and want to make sure to test it before putting the fix out

Why do my salt licks say 0% ? and does that mean they are empty? Answer: The hover text does not effect how they salt licks work if you check in the description field of the salt lick a full one will state 42 so are they empty at 0%? No when they are empty they will disappear..

Now on to the biggest question and concern I see of the day…
Why is food going so fast? Answer: Its not going faster than it ever has. A hungry horse will eat about 2 to 3 times more then a horse that is not hungry. Let me give you an example of something
If you have 300 horses they will eat 300 foods a month it is 1 food per horse per month 300 divided by 4 weeks being 28 days is 11 foods a day is what 300 NON hungry horses will eat.. Food is not going any faster then it should be if you are having issues they could be due to sl itself or the horses could be hungry as stated….

On to the next Big Question
Why can you not release new stuff into the old horses without buying new? Answer: We have to remember all horses have a dom and sub trait if you have a horse that you have been working hard on for a long time would you want its traits to change? No you wouldn’t  If we could make it to where you could get new traits from the old horses your traits would change all together

With all this being said I do wanna say that I am very sad how some do act in the group, we do our best to provide you all with great customer service and we will still strive to do our best we are not perfect just like everyone else we put our pants on one leg at a time. I wish and hope that the group could be more civil at times instead of arguing like I do see alot of… If an Amaretto staff member gives info in the group why argue with us and tell us we are wrong? why ask the question if you are just going to say we are wrong….  sometimes it seems that some want to come in the group and try to take control over the group which is wrong it is sad but true…..

I do hope that I did not offend anyone but the truth being said I will see you all next Tuesday…
