If you bred together in any combination the following horses in the month of March:

then you had a chance to make one of these Craved Sprinkled Glazed! Remember the Craved DO have the ability to pass their coat! I can think of a few different traits to put on these horses.

Happy breeding everyone! This is Ava over and out!

Beautiful Brandings

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope your weekend is off to a wonderful start.

Today the spotlight is shining on the Brandings trait for our horses!

The branding trait comes from breeding “Starter Coats” together or one starter with any other horse and CAN be passed on with the exception of the Amaretto Branding which is limited to the Show Horse only and can NOT pass on.

You could also get a Null Branding – a Null trait is an “Invisible trait”, a placeholder. These placeholders were implemented as a way to allow the breeder to have a maximum trait horse but still look the way they want it to look.

Additionally we have some Random Brandings as shown below. Please note that these brandings CAN be passed on with the exception of the Amaretto Branding.

The Amaretto Branding is limited to the Show Horse only and can NOT pass on.

For more information and a closer look at these brandings check them out on the website at https://horse.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=Branding

Until next time this Snookie hoping you have an amazing weekend.  Stay safe and Happy Breeding!

We Appreciate You

In these trying times it is good to remember the people who do their best to make our lives run a little easier, who go into public service, who instruct and protect us, and bring a little brightness into our lives. From firefighters and policemen, teachers and stay at home parents, to dentists, artists, and even chefs, please remember to show your appreciation by saying Thank You.

To show their appreciation for these often unsung heroes Amaretto brought out the Appreciation Eyes. Starting March 1, 2014, the first of the new Appreciation Eyes were born onto the grid, promoting appreciation for something new each month. These eyes could drop randomly every month from any breeding from the 4.0 horses and higher, starting with the Medical Appreciation eye and ending with the Engineer Appreciation eye in Feb 2015. These eyes are traited and Can be passed on. Which one is your favorite?

Gold Reins!

Hey everyone! Hope that everyone is staying happy and healthy! I know its crazy out there!
I wanted to show off the newest horse trait to hit the grid!

Gold Reins!

I love these! How do you get one? Well by breeding any 2020 Hullabazoo – Amaretto Gone Wild! Thats right anytime you breed a 2020 Hullabazoo – Amaretto Gone Wild horse with any other horse you have the chance to get the Gold Reins!

These Gold Reins DO have the ability to pass!

The 22nd AMOC BunKenNestKet Hunt will begin on Friday, April 10th at 2PM (SLT) and end on Sunday, April 12th at 10AM (SLT).

HOW DO YOU BECOME A HUNT LOCATION?
You do not have to be a market to participate, even small individual parcels can join in the fun. On average, the hunts attract more than one-hundred-fifty hunters. So, this is a great way to get traffic to your sales yards!

If you would like to be a host sim or parcel in this hunt*, get hoppin! 🐇 Applications are limited to 20 and we already have 12 locations registered.

*Please note that if you choose to participate in the hunt, a donation of bundles, kennels, nests and/or baskets is mandatory.

HOW DO YOU HUNT?

The AMOC team consists of Snookiegirl Resident, Blush Topaz, JesterofSorrow Resident, Greyvenney Resident, Zev Luv, and Tazzy Balbozar. Group joins will be closed during the hunt, so plan ahead.

At the beginning of the hunt, a notecard giver will be available to give you hunt location SLURLS and hints to finding the hidden prims. Each sim prim will give 1 bundle, kennel, nest or basket to each avatar. But, that’s not all! There will be special prims hidden that reveal awesome Amaretto prizes. 🐣

DONATION ARE NEEDED!
Speaking of our hunt, you may or may not know that all of our AMOC activities are generated solely by donations. Without the generosity of breeders like YOU, our hunts would not be possible! We sincerely appreciate any unused bundles, kennels, nests and/or baskets.

A current list of all donation boxes can be found here: https://www.theamarettofamily.com/threads/donation-box-locations.17/

Tip: To keep from losing donations, we suggest that you put them in a prim box and then add the prim to the donation box.

Happy Monday everyone! Today I wanted to take a moment to go over an awesome trait you might not know about… the Null trait! The Null trait is available is the Amaretto Horses and K-9s! Nulls were introduced as a way to let breeders have the maximum number of traits on their breedable but have it still look the way they want it to look.  By using the Null traits to fill the slots of the traits you don’t want on your horse you can build yourself a highly traited horse that still looks like it has no traits!

The list below shows all the Null traits available for the horse and what each Null replaces.

Brand Null
Hair Gloom Null – Holds the place of Hair Gloom
Coat Gloom Null – Holds the place of Coat Gloom

Hair Luster Null – Holds the place of Hair Luster
Coat Luster Null – Holds the place of Coat Luster
Hair Gleam Null – Holds the place of Hair Gleam
Coat Gleam Null – Holds the place of Coat Gleam
Hair Opal Null – Holds the place of Hair Opal
Coat Opal Null – Holds the place of Coat Opal
Leg Null – Holds the place of socks and hoofs

Ear Tip Null– Holds the place of ear tip
Horn Null– Holds the place of the Horn

Remember that not all the Nulls listed can be on one horse at the same time.  The current maximum that a horse can have at one time is 18 nulls.

The list below shows all the Null traits available for the K-9s and what each Null replaces.

Ear Size Null – Holds the place of Small or Large Ears
Size Null – Holds the place of Runt or Pick
Nose Null – Holds the place of Black Spotted Nose, Pale Nose, Liver Spotted Nose, and Liver Nose
Tail Null – Holds the place of Long or Short tail
Polish Null – Holds the place of Paw Polish
Radiance Null – Holds the place of High or Low Radiance

The current maximum that a K-9 can have at one time is 8 Nulls.

So now you got all the info on the nulls. You can find it on our super informative wiki pages: http://amarettobreedables.com/pages/manuals

On Jan.14,2019 Amaretto released its first ever Deluxe Edition Stride Towards Freedom to honor and celebrate MLK! These Ponies were hiding the Gold Glitter Wing!

Happy Breeding!!

That’s Whacky!

What exactly is a wattle on a chicken? A wattle is a fleshy bit hanging from various parts of the head or neck in several groups of birds and mammals. In birds, wattles are often an ornament for courting potential mates. Large wattles are correlated with high testosterone levels, good nutrition, and the ability to evade predators, which in turn indicates a potentially successful mate. It has also been proposed that ornamental organs such as wattles are associated with genes coding for disease resistance. In umbrellabirds the wattle serves to amplify the birds’ call. Both male and female chickens have wattles, which help them to stay cool during warmer weather.

Cassowary

Amaretto likes to add new traits to the birds to keep them interesting. They celebrated Valentines Day on Feb 2nd 2019 and released Valentines Edition animals that you could purchase until Feb 15th 2019. There was a chance that you could get a brand new trait Whacky Wattle from any breeding of these 2019 Valentines Day Edition Barnyard Birds Chickens.
This was the the 13th trait added to the Barnyard Birds Chickens, the Whacky Wattle!
The Whacky Wattle DOES have the ability to pass!

I can’t wait to see what other new traits will show up on the Barnyard Birds, since Amaretto likes to surprise us!

Just DON’T do it!

Hey guys I wanted to take a few moments to talk to you guys about something that has became an issues today for some people. There are things that I did not even realize that something that some of our breeders are doing.

Are you setting your breedables for zero lindens?!
Why would you do that?!

I cant think of one reason that you should ever set a no copy object for sale for zero lindens unless you just want to give it away for free.

The problem with this is when you set something for sale for 0 lindens you can not control who buys it. So even though you set it for your partner, parent, kid, or friend, there is nothing stopping Joe Blow from panning up to your skybox, or parcel and buying your horse for FREE!

Even better Ava cant help you because Linden Labs will say, well you set it for 0 lindens!

Guys please be smart with the way you set items for sale, and what you do with your breedables, because situations like these could be totally avoided! This is Ava over and out! Happy breeding everyone!
