Crystal Wings!!

Hello everyone I hope your weekend is off to a great start. Can you believe tomorrow is March 1st already – time is certainly flying by!!  Speaking of flying let’s talk about wings!

Today the spotlight is shining on the Crystal Wings trait for our horses!

On April 27, 2019 Amaretto released the 6.01 update! With this update came lots of new traits including Crystal Wings!

The Crystal Wings are one set of many exciting possible Non-Starter traits that can come from breeding “Starter Coats”.

You can have a chance at one of these exciting Non-Starter Crystal Wings by breeding any horse with a starter horse or by breeding together two starter horses.

Gold Crystalline wing was a hidden surprise in the 2019 Filigree Gachas!

You can check these wings out on the wiki at https://horse.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=Crystal_Wings

Just imagine the designer horse you can make using this wings.  So go ahead pick your favorite and make your own gorgeous designer horse!

Until next time this is Snookie hoping you have an amazing weekend and an even better week!

Happy Breeding!

I LOVE MY SNOOPY DOG

The beagle is a breed of small hound that is similar in appearance to the much larger foxhound. The beagle is a scent hound, developed primarily for hunting hare. Possessing a great sense of smell and superior tracking instincts, the beagle is the primary breed used as detection dogs for prohibited agricultural imports and foodstuffs in quarantine around the world. The beagle is intelligent. It is a popular pet due to its size, good temper, and a lack of inherited health problems.

Beagles have been depicted in popular culture since Elizabethan times in literature and paintings, and more recently in film, television, and comic books. Snoopy of the comic strip Peanuts has been called “the world’s most famous beagle”

In August of 2011, Amaretto released breedable dogs! Starter coats included Apricot, Tan, Red and Brown Tri-Color Beagles. The traited coat of beagles were the Bi-Color ones, Red Brown Tan and Apricot, which you could get from breeding any K-9 with a starter K-9 or by breeding together two starter K-9s. Both of these coats could be passed. Even though they are now retired they can still be passed from existing lines.

Beagles have also been used for a Special Editions Autumn Nights Beagle, the Enchanted Bloodthirsty Beagle, the 2012 Valentine Beloved Beagle and Best in Show Beagle,the 2016 Happy Father’s Day Beagle, the Beagle Mutt, Blanco Beagle, the zodiac Leo Beagle in August 2017, Twist coats Schneagle and Beawolf, Crimson Bloodthirsty Beagle sold at the 2012 Auction for a Cure, and the Crazed Coat Beagles!

These fantastic coats can all be seen on the Amaretto K-9 Wiki here:

“Last Bundle” and “Last Bred” Buttons… What Are They?

Hello and Happy Thursday to everyone! Today I am going to take a moment to talk to you about the Last Bundle and Last Bred buttons on the menu. This button is a very useful tool and I think it is very under used. Let me give you an example of how useful this button can be… Let’s say you log on one day and quickly head over to check your bundles you got while you were offline… you get to one of your favorite horses and to your dismay the bundle underneath it has a bright red error message over it reading “Mother Had Second Bundle In 3 Days” and you didn’t already receive a good bundle! What?! Noooo! Now, thanks to Linden Labs, it is ticket time! Now here is where that button comes in handy. You can simply follow these simple steps and get the UUID of the last bundle they had (or should’ve had in the case of the “Mother had second bundle”) I am using a horse in this post as an example but this applies to K9 and Barnyard Birds as well…

To get the last bundle of a horse, K9, or Bird

  1. Click on the breedable to bring up the Main Menu
  2. From the Main Menu select the Breeding button
  3. From there you select Last Bundle

You will see in local chat something that looks like this:

[17:29] Amaretto Breedable Horse: The last bundle dropped by this horse was Amaretto Breedable Bundle with the ID of 1caf7404-XXXX-fe7f-9e4e-2ebXXXf5587

If the horse is has not had any bundles you will see the following in local chat:

[17:29] Amaretto Breedable Horse: This horse hasn’t had any bundles yet.

If the horse was not owned by you when the last bundle dropped you will see the following in local chat:

[17:29] Amaretto Breedable Horse: You did not own this horse when its last bundle was born

I would also like to add, if you click on a male horse, they get kind of touchy if you ask what their last bundle is. They will tell you the following in local chat… *giggles*

[17:30] Amaretto Breedable Horse: I’m a male, I don’t give birth!

Now that we have covered the Last Bundle, Let’s cover the Last Bred button…

Let me give you an example of when the Last Bred button comes in handy, say you have lost a bundle… it’s time to file a ticket… but all you remember is the mother and the CSR is asking for parent info… you can click this button on the mother and it will give you the last horse she bred to in local chat.

To get the last bred to information of a horse, K9, or Bird simply following these instructions:

  1. Click on the breedable to bring up the Main Menu
  2. From the Main Menu select the Breeding button
  3. From there you select the Last Bred button

You will see in local chat something that looks like this:

[17:30] ~Mr Wild Mustang Clydes~: The latest horse partner was ~Ms Pretty Little Lady~ with the ID of c07e698a-f7f7-5e40-XXX-82c38622XXXX

If the horse has not bred yet you will see the following in local chat:

[17:31] Amaretto Breedable Horse: This horse hasn’t been bred yet.

If the horse was not owned by you when the last horse last bred you will see the following in local chat:

[17:29] Amaretto Breedable Horse: You did not own this horse when it was last bred.

So you see these two buttons can be very handy, especially when it comes to making your ticket process goes smoother. I hope everyone has a better understanding of these nifty little buttons and utilizes them when needed!

I hope everyone has a great day and happy breeding, this is Ava over and out!!

An Amaretto Fairy Tale

Happy Hump Day Fellow Breeders!

Did you know that today is National Tell a Fairy Tale Day? Yep, it happens every Feb 26th! To commemorate the day, I would like to share a short little Amaretto fairy tale with you.

The cloud Kingdom of the Charmed Fairytale Shetland.

Far above the clouds of Amarettoville, there is a beautiful kingdom in which adorable Shetland ponies roam wild. These cuties are not ordinary shetlands though. They are adorned with ribbons, lovely daisies of blue or purple, and flutter about with their delicate fairy wings. 

Charmed Fairytale Shetland Chocolate
Charmed Fairytale Shetland Cloudy

Life in the kingdom is idyllic. The ponies frolic and play all day, yet, some wish for adventure. After hearing about the wonderful Amaretto breeders in Second Life, they decided it was time to explore. That’s why, beginning back on the 7th of October, 2016 (which happened to coincide with the Amaretto 5.5 horse update), these little Shetlands began to descend from the clouds to live happily ever after within the Amaretto Community. The breeders of Amaretto were overjoyed and vowed to love and cherish the ponies forever.

Being unpredictable little ponies though, you never know when one might appear in your herds. You could be very lucky and have one show up at random from ANY of your horse breedings. And, by breeding these beauties with your other horses, you could very well invite another charmer into your herd.

The moral of this story is:

  • Charmed Fairytale Shetland Chocolate or Charmed Fairytale Shetland Cloudy can drop randomly from ANY horse breeding.
  • Charmed Horses are NOT able to pass their coats. However, you could get extremely lucky and birth another Charmed Horse.
  • When you breed a Charmed Horse (whether it is with another Charmed Horse or any other horse) you DO have an increased chance at receiving another random Charmed Horse.
  • The non-Charmed offspring of Charmed Horses do NOT have an increased chance of producing Charmed Horses.
  • However, the Fairytale Daisy Blue and Purple eyes DO have the ability to pass.

“Life is a fairy tale. Live it with wonder and amazement.” – Welwyn Wilton Katz

Until next time…Happy Breeding!

Dazzle Horses

Hey Everyone!

Today I wanted to take a look at the amazing Dazzle Horses. These horses are absolutely gorgeous and very special.


On September 1, 2015 Amaretto released the Dazzle horses!

On October 7,2016 Amaretto released new starters in version 5.5 there were new hidden Dazzle Horses Ruby, Peridot, Opal, Turquoise, and Pearl Dazzle Horses.

https://horse.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=Dazzle_Horses

Dazzle Horses can only come by breeding a male and female with Dazzle eyes together.

The Dazzle eyes can be viewed on the wiki at the following links:
http://wiki.amarettobreedables.com/index.php?title=Dazzle_Eyes
http://wiki.amarettobreedables.com/index.php?title=Dazzle_HeartShine_Eyes
http://wiki.amarettobreedables.com/index.php?title=Dazzle_StarShine_Eyes

They do NOT have to be the same Dazzle Eyes to have a chance at getting one of these randomly dropped coats.
The Saddles that come with each amazing Dazzle coat are specific to their coat and they do have the ability to pass. That’s right you heard it correct these beautiful new Saddles DO have the ability to pass!! Dazzle Horses can NOT pass their coat. However breeding a Dazzle Horse with another Dazzle Horse or with any other horse with Dazzle Eyes you will slightly increase your chance for another Dazzle Horse.

So good luck getting one of these awesome horses!

Happy breeding everyone!

Duck Legs!

Hello everyone hope you are all having a great day and enjoying the start of your weekend!

Today I want to shine the spotlight on the awesome leg trait for our ducks.

Duck Legs traits were released hidden inside of starter ducks on October 8, 2018 with the release of version 1.0! The Duck Legs trait comes from breeding “Starter breed” together or one starter with any other Duck.

From October 20, 2018 through Nov 3, 2018 Amaretto celebrated Halloween with the first Duck Collectors Edition, the Bloody leg was hiding in the 2018 Halloween Edition.

On March 9th 2019 Amaretto celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with 2019 Collectors Edition Luck of the Irish animals that you could purchase until March 22nd, 2019. These Horses were hiding the Shamrock Leg!

Silver Glitter Leg was a hidden surprise in the 2019 Filigree Gachas!

Please note that there are currently 10 different Duck Legs available and that these Duck Legs CAN be passed on.

So now it’s time to start putting these legs on your favorite duck and make a new designer duck by adding these awesome legs to all the other duck traits. Not sure what is available? Well check out all the duck traits on the wiki at https://duck.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=Duck_Legs

Until next time this is Snookie saying have a great weekend.

Happy Breeding!!

Percherons

The Percheron is a breed of draft horse that originated in the Huisne river valley in western France, part of the former Perche province from which the breed takes its name. Usually gray or black in color, Percherons are well muscled, and known for their intelligence and willingness to work. They were originally bred for use as war horses. Over time, they began to be used for pulling stagecoaches and later for agriculture and hauling heavy goods. In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, Arabian blood was added to the breed. Exports of Percherons from France to the United States and other countries rose in the late 19th century, and the first purely Percheron stud book was created in France in 1883. In the American traveling circuses of the late 19th century and early 20th century, the Percheron was the most frequently seen draft horse. The Percheron is still used extensively for draft work and, like other draft breeds, it is also used in France for meat production.
Percherons in the United States generally stand between 16.2 and 17.3 hands (66 and 71 inches), average 1,900 pounds, and their top weight is around 2,600 pounds . They are generally gray or black in coloring, although the American registry also allows the registration of roan, bay and chestnut horses.

When the version 4.0 Horse update came out on September 9, 2013 these exciting new coats were hidden in new starters. The Apricot Dapple Percheron, Black Dapple Percheron, Brown Dapple Percheron, Brown and Grey Dapple Percheron, Dark Brown Dapple Percheron and Silver Dapple Percheron are one set of many exciting possible Non-Starter coats that can come from breeding “Starter Horses”.

Amaretto also used the Percheron horses to make a Twist, the Dapple Saddlebred. From November 5, 2014 until December 5, 2014 you could breed any color Amaretto Saddlebred and any color Percheron together for the chance at one of the Dapple Saddlebred Coats. The coat and eye CAN pass. You can see these coats on the wiki here

https://horse.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=Dapple_Saddlebred

From April 5, 2016 until May 4, 2016 you could breed any color Percheron horses together for the chance of getting one of the Crazed Percheron. No other qualifications necessary, just has to be 2 Percherons. The coat and eye CAN pass. You can see these great looking colorful coats on the wiki here

https://horse.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=Crazed_Coat_Dapple_Percheron

And of course there is the Albino Percheron, which comes from breeding full siblings. In order for a chance at an Albino Percheron one of these full siblings MUST BE a Percheron. The Albino Percheron coat does NOT pass, however, breeding an Albino Percheron with it’s sibling does slightly increase your chance for another Albino or Albino Percheron.

Hungry Hungry Amarettos!

Hey guys its Ava! I hope everyone is enjoyig this Thursday!

So with all the craziness that has been in sl the past couple of days I wanted to talk to you about sick Horses, K-9s, Barnyard Birds, and Ponies!

Ive seen a few people saying that their horses aren’t eating, I know there are several breedable market sims that have had known issues. I wanted to go over a few simple checks to make sure that all your settings are correct. I know some of you have been breeding Amaretto for years and know everything there is to know, but sometimes its only a setting that will keep your breedable from eating,

So here is Ava’s check list for a breedable that is not eating:

1. Are scripts turned on?
2. Is the food set to All, Owner Only, or Group?
3. Is the breedable set to to correct food breedable or pet?
4 Is the food within range?
5. Is my breedable frozen or duplicated?
6. Is my food duplicated? (check for a uuid in the description field of the food)
7. Did i rerezz the breedable?
8. Is my breedable up to date?

If you go thru all these questions and still can not figure out why your breedable is not eating you should go ahead and file a ticket to have a csr come out. I cant tell you how many times ive went to a breeders and its a simple setting that is keeping their breedable from eating! It can happen even to the seasoned breeder!

If your breedable is sick currently it will take 3 days for them to eat thier way out of sickness, unless you are talking about ponies, ponies must have ponie noodle soup once they have this poine is sick above their head!

So happy breeding and eating everyone!
This is Ava over and out!
