Ponie Pal Supplies

What are all these strange things the Ponie Pals use? What do I need to keep my Ponie Pals happy and breeding? Well here is a basic rundown of their supplies.

Food is called Grub. The grub stat means hunger. It’s a nice, tasty sandwich that they eat every 96 minutes. If food (Grub) is not present their Grub stat will rise until it reaches 100% at which time they will get sick. This can take 5 days. One Grub consumable will last one ponie approximately 6 weeks.

A ponie’s happiness is called Bliss. They need at least 70% bliss to start gaining moxie at age 6. For that they need the Bliss Gummy Bear. One bliss gummy lasts one ponie about 6 weeks.

Energize Me is the zing stat booster. It will boost your ponie’s zing by 15%. Zing is the ponie’s energy

Moxie Sundae increases the ponie pal’s moxie by 10%. Moxie needs to be 100 for the ponies to breed. This Sundae can be used once in 24 hours on the ponie.

Rainbow Cake Surprise is like a cocktail, only for ponies. It boosts the ponie’s bliss and moxie by 10%, the zing by 15%, and the grub is decreased by 10%. You can use it once in 24 hours.

An important consumable to know about is the Ponie Noodle Soup. If your ponie goes without food for 5 days it will get sick. The only way to fix that is with Noodle Soup.

Last but not least is the Everlasting Ponie. This golden apple can only be used on vintage ponies, that is, ponies that have no more descendants left and say Vintage in their stats. After you’ve used this the ponie will say Pet instead of Vintage, and cannot be changed back. It will also not need grub or bliss gummies ever again.

Once these consumables have been used up they will disappear. You can find the info about these on the Ponie Pal wiki here

Now you know how to keep your Ponie Pals happy, healthy, and breeding!

Alice and Queen of Hearts Saddles!

Hello everyone! Its a wonderful day here at Amaretto! I hope that everyone has had a good week as we are almost to FRIYAY!

I wanted to shine a spotlight on some saddles that are fairly new!
What saddles am I talking about?

Alice and Queen of Hearts! They are both dressage saddle that came from the 2021 Fairytale Edition Horses!

You can read all about them here:
https://horse.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=2021_Fairytale_Edition

I think these are cool because we don’t have as many Dressage Saddle options as we do racing.

These Saddles DO have the ability to pass!
I am excited to see what combos you will be placing these saddles on!

This is Ava over and out, happy breeding everyone!

The Dog Days of Summer

Happy Hump Day Breeders!

We often hear about the “Dog Days” of Summer but few know what the expression means. Some say that it signifies hot sultry days “not fit for a dog,” others suggest it’s the weather in which dogs go mad. The Dog Days of Summer describes the most oppressive period of Summer, between July 3rd and August 11th each year. But where did the term come from? And what does it have to do with dogs? To learn more, check out the Farmers’ Almanac!

It’s definitely hot outside but not as hot as these past Amaretto Summer K-9 editions!

In 2015, Amaretto took to the sea for two very special K-9s.

The coat on this 2016 Summer Edition K-9 DID NOT pass but any breeding gave a chance at getting the eyes, as well as the hidden surprises!

Eye: Great White
Collar: Great White

The coat on this 2017 Summer Edition K-9 DID NOT pass but there was a chance of getting the eye and collar!

Happy Breeding!!!

Australian Birds?

Today lets check out the Australorp chicken. Funny name for a chicken you say? Well, the original stock used in the development of the Australorp was imported to Australia from England out of the Black Orpington yards of William Cook and Joseph Partington in the period from 1890 to the early 1900s with Rhode Island Red. Local breeders used this stock together with judicious out-crossings of Minorca, White Leghorn and Langshan blood to improve the utility features of the imported Orpingtons. There is even a report of some Plymouth Rock blood also being used. The emphasis of the early breeders was on utility features. At this time, the resulting birds were known as Australian Black Orpingtons (Austral-orp).

The Australorp has three recognised colours according to the Australian Poultry Standard: black, white and blue.

White Australorps have been recorded since 1949 but they were only recognised in the second edition of the Australian Poultry Standards in 2011. The Poultry Club South Africa recognises four further colours: buff, splash, wheaten laced and golden. Australorps were developed as a utility breed with a focus on egg laying and the breed is famous for laying more than 300 eggs, which are light brown in color.

When Amaretto came out with the 3.0 Barnyard Bird update, one of the new breeds was the Black Australorp! You could have a chance at one of the exciting Non-Starter Breed Birds by breeding any bird with a starter bird or by breeding together two starter birds.
The Black Australorp breed CAN be passed on. Obviously, they can’t lay 300 eggs, as the regular Amaretto bird only lays 12, but have fun breeding them anyway!
