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).

Entries are limited to 15. So, sign up NOW at https://www.theamarettofamily.com/threads/march-madness-amaretto-showdown-march-13-15-2020.4263/

Sneak Peek at Showdown Setup

The next AMOC meeting, on Friday, February 14th @ 1PM (SLT), will be at the contest location, so make plans to attend and check it out for yourelf!

Until next time…HAPPY BREEDING! 🏀

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.

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!

Reptile Coats

Hi everyone! I hope you all had an amazing weekend! 🙂

I wanted to take a moment to share with you something that was announced at our 7th birthday in 2017! On September 1, 2017 Amaretto celebrated our 7 Year anniversary with a big Vegas Birthday Bash! It was announced that you could have your chance at getting a Reptile horse by breeding together any two reptile eyes.

Here is a list of the Reptile eyes that you can breed together to get a Reptile Horse:
Crocodile
Rough Green Snake
Green Tree Monitor Lizard
Tokay Gecko

Take a look at the Reptile Eyes here:http://wiki.amarettobreedables.com/index.php?title=Reptile_Eyes

There are 4 Reptile Horses currently:

Green Tree Monitor Lizard Reptile
Rough Green Snake Reptile
Crocodile Reptile
Tokay Gecko Reptile

Take a look at the Reptile Coats here: http://wiki.amarettobreedables.com/index.php?title=Reptile_Horses


Remember you can breed any combination of these eyes to have a chance at a reptile horse. The Reptile horse you get will be randomly chosen from the 4 currently available.

Happy Reptile Breeding!
