How To Breed By Groups

Happy Hump Day Breeders!

In today’s Connection, I want to explain how Group breeding is done. It’s a very easy way to keep your breedables together without separating them into pods and without fear of those “oopsie” breedings!

This will work for all your breedables – horses, K-9s, birds, and ponies. However, for illustration here, I’m using horses.

First, you need to make sure your sim or parcel will allow object entry from another group. You can do this by clicking the name of your parcel at the top of your screen to get the About Land box. When the box pops up, go to the Options tab and make sure that Object Entry is set to Everyone. Otherwise, you’ll see your mare in recovery but no bundle!

Second, click on a horse and go into edit mode. In the edit box, go to Group and click the wrench to the right. When the Groups box pops up, pick another group (doesn’t matter which, as long as your parcel allows it.)

Do this for each horse you wish to group together. Just make sure each breeding group is assigned to a different group.

Next, set all the horses in your breeding group to Group breeding. To do this, click the horse for their menu, click on Breeding, then Mating, and then select Group.

Now, they will only breed with the horses in the group you’ve set them to! See, super easy! I hope you find this information helpful and that you breed something amazing!

Until next time…HAPPY BREEDING!


Last Bundle or Last Bred

Hello and a terrific Tuesday 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!!

Wild Hair What?

Hey everyone its a Manic Monday here at Amaretto Ranch!
I was watching the group today and had an idea for my connection and hope it will actually help some of you.
Lets talk about Wild Hairs!
Here are some questions that I have seen lately about wild hair!

What hair can be a wild hair ??
Any horse that has a regular mane and tail sculpt.

Does that include charmed horses?
That includes charmed, limited edition, haven horses.

How can I tell what a wild hair looks like there isnt a wild hair section on the wiki??
No there is no wild hair section just go to the specific horse your wild hair is and take a peek!

Does wild hair have the ability to pass??
YES!

Where do wild hairs come from?
The come from starter horses, new limited editions, and new haven horses!

How do i know if my wild hair is new or old??
Have you seen it before? If not it could be a new wild hair!

Is wild hair considered a trait??
YES!

How many wild hairs are there??
As many horses that have a regular mane and tail sculpt.

Here is examples of a normal tail sculpt:

Here is an example of a not normal tail sculpt:

Hopefully i have cleared up some of the confusions on wild hair! This is Ava happy breeding everyone!!

Ear Tips!

Hello everyone!! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a great weekend!

Today I want to shine the spotlight on the Ear Tip trait for our horses!

Ear Tips were introduced as the 25th Trait from the 2015 Independence Day – Uncle Sam Horse.

These 2015 Independence Day – Uncle Sam Horse must be breed to each other to have a chance at getting the eyes as well as the hidden surprises!

On Dec.18,2015 Amaretto wanted to celebrate Christmas with some 2015 Holiday Edition Horses. These 2015 Holiday Edition Horses have a chance at getting the eyes as well as hidden surprises from any breeding. This surprise was the Candy Cane and Snowflake Ear Tip.

On August 4th, 2016 until August 19th 2016 Amaretto celebrated Summer 2016 with 2016 Summer Edition – Hang Tens!Any breeding of these 2016 Summer Edition – Hang Ten gave you the ability to get a brand new Gold or Rainbow Ear Tip.

On February 14, 2018 Amaretto celebrated Valentines day with random drop Valentines traits! One of these traits was the Hugs & Kisses Ear Tip! You only had 24 hours on Valentines Day for your ponies to drop the Hugs & Kisses Ear Tip!

On Sept 12, 2018 Amaretto celebrated Fall with 2018 Autumn Harvest animals that you could purchase until September 26th, 2018! These Horses were hiding the Candy Corn Ear Tip!

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

Please note that the Ear Tip trait CAN be passed on. Also, please note Ear tips will look different on different breed of horses these are pictured on Walkers.

IMAGINE THAT!

On November 23, 2014 Amaretto donated the Amaretto T4T OOAK Imagination Cobalt to be auctioned off at the Amaretto’s Toys For Tots Auction!! Over 3,113,600L$ was raised in total at the Amaretto’s Toys For Tots Auction, which raises money to buy children toys for Christmas!!! The Amaretto T4T OOAK Imagination Cobalt was won by Duckkula with the high winning bid of 2,850,000 Lindens!  The Mesmerize Cobalt eye, the Cobalt wing, and most importantly the Cobalt coat could pass. Unfortunately those amazing antlers could NOT pass.


As an added bonus, hidden inside the OOAK was another coat! The Imagination Emerald coat, with its own Imagination Emerald eye and Emerald wing, all three of which could pass!

Today’s connection is a short one, as I’m sure everyone is more interested in opening presents, visiting loved ones, or enjoying a meal. Maybe some of you will say a prayer for those we have lost this past year, or give best wishes to new arrivals and family additions. Whatever your plans are for today, I hope it’s a happy one.

Let It Snow!

Happy Hump Day Breeders!

Can you believe it’s just 2 days until Christmas? Some of us may be looking forward to a white Christmas. But, for others who do not have snow in the forecast, you can always find a delightful Snowflake trait with Amaretto breedables! So, Let it Snow!

Snowflake Horse Traits

It all started with the Penguin Paradise Fell Pony in 2012. This Limited Edition had the ability to pass it’s Winter Snowflake eye.

Next, came the Winter Snowflake Hoof which was hidden in the 2012 Holiday Horses. The 2014 Holiday Horses followed with a Winter Snowflake Sock.

In 2015, the Holiday Horses gave us double the Snowflakes! Hidden inside these Limited Editions were the Snowflake Ear Tip and Snowflake Saddle.

The 2017 Mr. and Mrs. Amaretto Christmas Horses brought another two Snowflake traits, with the Winter Snowflake Branding and Winter Snowflake Wing hidden inside.

Craved Snowflake

This time last year, we were all breeding for Craved Snowflakes for our monthly breeding surprise! Better still, they were available in all four Amaretto breedables – Horses, K-9s, Chickens, and Ponies!

As you can see, even if you don’t live where there is frozen precipitation, you can still enjoy lots of snowflakes!

Happy Holidays, Everyone!

Until next time, HAPPY BREEDING!

Posh Ponies!

Hello everyone and Happy Saturday! I hope your day is going well and your weekend is off to a great start!

Today I want to shine the spotlight on the Ponie Pal Posh Ponie!!

Amaretto Posh Ponies are very special Ponies that can be born at random from ANY Ponie breeding combination.

Posh Ponies are NOT able to pass their style.

However, you could get extremely lucky and birth another Posh Ponie.

When you breed a Posh Ponie (whether it is with another Posh Ponie or any other Ponie ) you DO have an increased chance at receiving another random Posh Ponie.

The non posh offspring of Amaretto Posh Ponies do NOT have an increased chance of producing Amaretto Posh Ponies.

Posh Ponies are NOT able to pass their style. Posh Ponies DO have the ability to pass their eye.

Until next time this is Snookie hoping you have a wonderful weekend and an even better week ahead.

Happy Breeding!!
