Interview With an Amaretto Breeder

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

This week I had the pleasure to interview TeaSugarCream Resident. She is an Amaretto Breeder ! So if you see her in second Life give her a big hello !

Please tell the community a little about yourself. Where you are from and what brought you to Second Life?
I live in SW Florida and I’ve been in Second Life for almost 8 years. I read about it in a magazine and wanted to join the party, literally. After I was in SL for a couple of years, someone gifted me my first Amaretto horse (A gray appy) and I have been a boutique breeder (usually less than 16 horses birthed at any one time) ever since.
Which Amaretto Breedables do you own?
Horses, but I find all the Amaretto Breedables interesting. I don’t have any Amaretto chickens, but I smile when I see them.

*Do you own other breedables besides Amaretto?
Well,…. My beloved, Kindred has a dog, but it is not a breedable, and it usually lives in his inventory. I really like to see animals roaming around a home and property. It helps to complete a home, I think. And when an interactive cyber pet is roaming freely, it is just like having a pet friend in a real life home; a companion to help keep us company, and keep things interesting.
*What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto Horses?
Nulls, nulls and only nulls. I’m crazy about the null traits because I see breeding nulls as a way to keep the value of the horses up, and yet give an amaretto a very natural look. I have literally hundreds of Null bundles in my inventory, and even a stash of 30 perfect nulls that contain every single null trait. I’m also crazy about red walkers, as well as the other natural coats that look like any of the paints in real life; the skewbalds and saddlebreds, for example.
Another huge project for me was to find a compatible eye. Just when I thought that a dark brown or black starter eye was going to be my only option, I discovered the Shiny Black Paint eye on a limited edition that would pass the eye trait, and I knew from the moment I saw it that it was perfect. I believe it looks like a very normal real horse eye, so I am slowly succeeding in breeding it into my small herd.
I also started a group for Amaretto Null Breeder Enthusiasts, but were only a small, quiet group of 8, so far. Amaretto horses offer many options and are so diverse with the coats, and crazeds and specialties, there just aren’t too many of us who have bred all 14 (15) null traits into a single horse. Many people see an all nulled horse as being plain, but that is ok with me. I like to maintain a certain look in a horse, as many can say about their own beautiful Amaretto projects.

What is your favorite Amaretto Breedable ?
Without a doubt, horses are. I love trail riding in SL and sometimes it takes me back to when I was younger and owned/showed horses in real life. In many ways, Amaretto horses are easier to own…. They are by far less expensive, and they don’t need to have their stalls mucked, nor do they try to break into the tack/feed room looking to pilfer some grain. I’m not at all kidding about that- my real life sister had a horse that learned to turn a door handle with his mouth. He’d literally work on the locks on gates and stall doors until he could get them open. One morning Kathy slept in late and Poco let himself out of his stall, opened 2 gates and the back door to our home then quite loudly whinnied for her to get up and feed them.

What are some other things that you enjoy doing in Second Life when you’re not taking care of your breedables?
…There is more to do in Second Life than taking care of Amarettos? Ha ha…
Currently I’m into quests, exploring some of the art themed sims, as well as scoping out great places to go to for dancing and entertainment. I love Second Life, and watching it evolve. I was here in a time when our oceans were just a flat blue, and clouds never drifted. Interactive animals were not an option, and hair didn’t move at all. We’ve come a long way, and I can only imagine what SL might be like in 5-10 more years. Likely I’ll still be here, and probably still breeding Amarettos.

Thank you TeaSugarCream for letting me interview you for this week .
