Made In The Shade!

Happy Hump Day Fellow Breeders!

As we head into the month of May, I am so glad to see more sunny days. Its time to bust out the sunglasses, or shades, and bask in some warming rays. ☀️

Do you know who else likes shades? Amaretto Barnyard Birds, of course!

The Shade trait originally came from breeding Collectors Edition Barnyard Birds together or with any other bird. Please note that this trait CAN be passed on.

On October 28th, 2013, Amaretto released the 2013 Collectors Edition Halloween Barnyard Birds! Any breeding of these 2013 Collectors Edition Halloween Barnyard Birds gave a chance at getting hidden surprises! These surprises were the Shades Slime, Panic, and Pumpkin!

On December 18, 2013, Amaretto released the 2013 Holiday Barnyard Birds! Any breeding of these 2013 Holiday Barnyard Birds gave a chance at getting hidden surprises! These surprises were the Shades Fire and Frost!

On February 9, 2015, Amaretto released the Valentine’s Day Collectors Edition Barnyard Birds. By breeding these 2015 Valentine’s Day Collectors Edition together, you had a chance of finding their hidden surprises! These surprises were shades Love and Sunshine!

Adding shade to a Barnyard Bird can completely change the way a Breed looks; giving you a multitude of design options! So, breed your favorite color shade into a Barnyard Bird project and see how bright your future can be!

Until next time…HAPPY BREEDING! 😎

I’M BORED! WHAT DO I DO?

Seriously, what do you do when you have too much time on your hands? Clean your room? NO! Clean your inventory! Check out your Amaretto breedables. Do you have a folder full of anonymous Amaretto Breedable Bundles? Kennels, nests and baskets with no name on them and you feel overwhelmed? Take 15 minutes (or an hour if you feel ambitious) each day to do a little organizing and rename them. Pull some out to check out the traits on them, you may be surprised at what you’ve forgotten you had. I heard one breeder do that and she found a Charmed she didn’t even remember her horse dropped! You could find that elusive eye you have been searching for everywhere, or even some traits OTHERS have been looking for to purchase!

Everyone has their own system for storage. I like to make a folder for each type of breedable, then folders for their drops, folders for each coat or special trait , maybe one for full siblings. Even if you only do a folder for the coat, it makes it a lot easier to find later on if Amaretto names that particular thing for a project. When naming try to use abbreviations you will recognize to include important information on each bundle/kennel/nest/basket, and the gender. This can also help if you plan on selling them, as it makes it easier for buyers to sort through a pile of bundles with names instead of Amaretto Breedable bundle, or even the anonymous -Bundle Ready DO NOT OPEN lol.

Another thing to consider is if you have tons of bundles sitting on the ground waiting to be named and picked up. That is robbing you of prims that could be filled with more lives waiting to breed! So take a little time each day to do some organizing, and while you’re at it, you might find some to box up and donate to AMOC’s next bundle hunt! Happy Sorting!!

It’s Earth Day!

Happy Hump Day Fellow Breeders!

Actually, I should say, “Happy Earth Day!” Fifty years ago today, the first Earth Day was marked in the United States as a call for environmental reform, following a massive oil spill off the coast of California. Half a century later, this call falls at a time when the health of people and nature has never been more urgent.

Since the Covid-19 pandemic began, improvements in pollution levels have been seen in countries with restricted movements of people and the shutdown of factories and businesses. After the lockdowns, we may see a greater appreciation for nature in many countries around the world. A window of opportunity is opening from this pandemic which, if seized, can integrate economic recovery with environmental change.

Celebrate the Day with Earth inspired traits!

For Amaretto Horses, the Earth Element eye is one of 5 Elemental Eyes that originally came from breeding starter coats. These eyes are passable and by breeding two horses with Element Eyes together you have the chance to randomly birth one of the Elemental Horses, like the Elemental Earth. Elemental Horses can not pass their coat, however, breeding an Elemental Horse with another Elemental Horse or with any other horse with Element Eyes you will slightly increase your chance for another Elemental Horse.

The Earth Galaxy eye is one of 12 Galaxy Eyes which originally came from breeding starter coats. These eyes are passable. The Galaxy Horses, like this Galaxy Earth, can be randomly birthed by breeding together any two horses that have Galaxy Eyes. The Galaxy Horse coats do not pass, however, breeding a Galaxy Horse with another Galaxy Horse or with any other horse with Galaxy Eyes you will slightly increase your chance for another Galaxy Horse.

For the Amaretto K9s, from June 1st to July 31st of 2018, if you bred any Great Dane with a Clover Splashed Great Dane you had the chance to get the first-ever Earth Elemental K-9! The Elemental Earth coat did not have the ability to pass, but, the Earth Elemental Eye and Collar do! So, create your own design using these traits!

Elemental Earth K9 with Eye & Collar

With the 3.01 updates, Galaxy traits have begun to show up on the grid. These have not, yet, made their way to the wiki. Until they do, take a look at this Earth Galaxy Collar submitted by a fellow breeder.

It will be exciting to see what the future holds for these awesome new traits!

The diversity of Amaretto Breedables is amazing. There are always traits available to use in your celebratory breeding no matter the event or holiday!

Until next time…Stay Safe and Happy Breeding!

Points of Contact!

Hello everyone I hope that everyone has had a great day! I wanted to take some time today to talk to you about something I am very passionate about and that is that you as a customer of Amaretto can always find help or talk to someone if you need help!

If it is within normal business hours you can go to the main horse store and see who is online and use the paging system to speak with someone.

Another way that you can get in touch with Amaretto is by filing a ticket! We answer all tickets, even the ones that may be considered silly or not ticket worthy. So we will respond to any ticket filed. This is a great way to communicate because you can access your tickets anytime on our support page and it also keeps a record for us!

Also located at every Amaretto location is a suggestion mail box, so if you have a great idea that you want to share with Amaretto you can put it in a nc and drop it in any mailbox!

On the last Thursday of ever month, Amaretto hosts a community meeting where everyone is welcome to attend, and the floor is open to discuss any issue you may be having with your breeadble! Also you might learn some secrets if you attend!
