Interview With an Amaretto Breeder

Happy Friday Everyone !! Hope everyone is having a good breeding day !!

This week I had the pleasure of interviewing Bluequinn Resident, she is in the Amaretto Classes and Groups so when you see her give her a big hello !!

Please tell the community a little about yourself. Where you are from and what brought you to Second Life?
My name is Blue Dashwood and I came to Second Life through simple curiosity while working on my computer. We all have those days where we need a distraction and clicking on that link proved to be mine. I am from England and the best part of SL has been meeting people from all over the world and allowing my creativity to flourish.

Which Amaretto Breedables do you own?
I am primarily a horse breeder, although I do have one pet dog called Baby Boo! He’s a butch boxer but he seems to like it;)

How did you get started in breedables?
A friend of mine had a ranch and what seemed like a million horses. For a long time I resisted breeding, as I saw how addictive it could be. However, I bought a random bundle and proudly showed it off to him. He refused to let me keep it on his ranch until, in his words, “I learnt something about horses and knew what I was doing.” So he became a mentor. I began with breeding WW/BW pinks. Then adding all blues traits onto WW/BW/Shetiques/Shetlands – creating my brand, ‘Blue Spirit’.

Do you own other breedables besides Amaretto?
No, I’ve never been tempted to be honest. One addiction is enough for me;)

What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto Horses?
This is where I get excited – my special projects. After the blue traits, I also added the yellow traits to WW and Yellow Sunshines and that is when I decided to try my hand at creating a designer horse. I created AMOC recognised ‘Blue Sunshine’ which is yellow/yellow gold traits on a Blue Denim horse. It matched together my two favourite colours! I consider myself a long line breeder and take pleasure in finding that special bundle with a particular brand or wing I want for 35 L that I can clean up and add to a project. I also breed Liberty Horses that are many gens deep.. All of my Liberties have the usual traits alongside red ear tips, blue saddle and most importantly the 4th of July branding. I enjoy breeding deeply adding new traits slowly to get a strong line. My favourite horse is the fell pony and I am also creating a Snowflake Fell and Christmas Fell with the ‘Here Comes Santa/Holly Turquoise’ eye. My goal is also to get an albino fell! Finally, I am working on my next designer project called ‘The Bumblebee’ which is yellow traits and a honeycomb eye on a Solid Black Fell Pony.

What is your favorite Amaretto Breedable ?
I think you can guess! lol

What are some other things that you enjoy doing in Second Life when you’re not taking care of your breedables?
Well, like most people I have done many things on SL, from being a Queen of a clan, owning a nightclub, helping set up an auction house and owning my own photo studio. But, best of al is being with the friends and family I have made on here, from Alf to Shaun to Jacky…amongst many others. Jacky was my joined at the hip brother on SL until our friendship became more real life and Shaun (Shaun82) is my cheeky younger brother who is one of the best auctioneers on SL and my go to person for horse advice. He is my partner in crime!

So there you go !!! Thanks Bluequinn for a great interview ! I am including some pictures of Blues special Amaretto Breedables !

Until next week Happy Breeding !!!
