Celebrate The Red Planet!

Happy Hump Day Fellow Breeders:

November 28th is Red Planet Day, a day to celebrate and learn more about the Red Planet – Mars. The planet is called so because it appears red in color. Named after the Roman god of war, Mars is the seventh smallest planet in the Solar System. Because of its similarity to Earth, with the same rotational period and seasonal cycles, many astronomers and scientists believe that at some point in its history Mars may have been a hospitable planet for life.

The date of this unofficial holiday commemorates the day in 1964 when Mariner 4, a robotic interplanetary probe was launched by NASA. In the 8 months it was on its mission, the Mariner 4 became the first spacecraft to successfully fly by Mars. It also gave the world the first close-up images of Mars.

Since then several exploratory missions have been sent to Mars to gather data about the planet. Today, 5 spacecrafts orbit Mars and 2 spacecrafts – the Curiosity Rover and the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity – are on the planet’s surface. All 7 send an incredible amount of data about the planet’s weather, atmosphere, geology and surface chemistry back to scientists on Earth.

Our study of the planet is not through! On Monday of this week, after seven months of traveling through space, the NASA InSight mission has landed on Mars! InSight will study the interior of Mars, a part of the planet that we know the least about, and will teach us valuable science as we prepare to send human explorers deeper into the solar system. NASA has estimated that it could send astronauts to the Red Planet by the 2030s. How amazing is that?  For more information about InSight, visit: https://mars.nasa.gov/insight/  🚀

So, celebrate Mars, Amaretto-style, by breeding for a Mars Galaxy Horse!

But, don’t let the day stop you at Mars, explore the entire universe by trying for all the other Galaxy Horses* as well!


*Amaretto celebrated it’s 2nd Birthday on September 1, 2012 and to honor this occasion the Galaxy horses were revealed! Then on it’s 8th Birthday on September 1, 2018, Amaretto introduced 5 more Galaxy horses to the breeding Community!

The Galaxy Horses can be randomly birthed by breeding together any two horses that have Galaxy Eyes:


Galaxy Horses can NOT pass their coat. But, breeding a Galaxy Horse with another Galaxy Horse or with any other horse with Galaxy Eyes will slightly increase your chance for another Galaxy Horse! So, start breeding them today!

Till next time….Have an Out-of-this-World Day 🛸 & Happy Breeding!
