Simply Dazzling!

Hello everyone and Happy Saturday!! Hope your weekend and New Year is off to a great start!

Today I wanted to take a look at the amazing Dazzle Horses. These horses are absolutely gorgeous and very special.

On September 1, 2015 Amaretto released the Dazzle horses!

On October 7,2016 Amaretto released new starters in version 5.5 there were new hidden Dazzle Horses Ruby, Peridot, Opal, Turquoise, and Pearl Dazzle Horses.

Dazzle Horses can only come by breeding a male and female with Dazzle eyes together.

The Dazzle eyes can be viewed on the wiki at the following links:

https://horse.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=Dazzle_Eyes

https://horse.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=Dazzle_HeartShine_Eyes

https://horse.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=Dazzle_StarShine_Eyes

They do NOT have to be the same Dazzle Eyes to have a chance at getting one of these randomly dropped coats.The Saddles that come with each amazing Dazzle coat are specific to their coat and they do have the ability to pass. That’s right you heard it correct these beautiful new Saddles DO have the ability to pass!! Dazzle Horses can NOT pass their coat. However breeding a Dazzle Horse with another Dazzle Horse or with any other horse with Dazzle Eyes you will slightly increase your chance for another Dazzle Horse.

For a closer look at any of these gorgeous horses check them out on the wiki at https://horse.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=Dazzle_Horses

So have fun and good luck in getting one of these gorgeous horses.

Until next week this is Snookie hoping your weekend is amazing and your next week is great!

Happy Breeding!!

I’m Wild About Them

The African wild dog (Lycaon pictus), also called the painted dog, or Cape hunting dog, is a canine native to sub-Saharan Africa. It is the largest indigenous canine in Africa, and it is estimated that about 6,600 adults including 1,400 mature individuals live in 39 subpopulations that are all threatened by habitat fragmentation, human persecution and outbreaks of diseases. The African wild dog is listed as endangered since 1990. It is a highly social animal, living in packs with separate dominance hierarchies for males and females. Uniquely among social carnivores, the females rather than the males disperse from the natal pack once sexually mature. The young are allowed to feed first on carcasses. There are five subspecies, with color variations in each, and as you can see they are very flashy.

Amaretto’s version of the Wild Dog is a little bit different but just as flashy. For the 2012 Holidays Amaretto released the Amaretto Special Edition 2012- Holiday K-9s at all Amaretto Locations! As an added twist for 24 hours starting December 20th Amaretto Retro Edition 2010 & 2011 Throwback Packs were sold. What made these even more special were the hidden surprises they held. By breeding any of these holiday K-9s (2012, Retro 2011) to each other you could unlock these hidden surprises. The In to the Wild K-9s were the hidden surprises! The In to the Wild K-9s CAN pass their Coat, Eyes & Collar!

In November of 2013 Amaretto started their special breeding called Twist Coats, which consisted each month of 2 different breeds that you had to breed together in order to discover the “twist coat, collar & eye”. From June 5, 2014 until July 5, 2014 you could breed any color of Dalmatian and any color of Into the Wild together for the chance at one of these Dawild Coats. No other qualifications were necessary, just had to be 1 Dalmatian and 1 Into the Wild any color. The results of this breeding were the Dawild coats, the White/Black, Black/White, Liver and my personal favorite because I’m a sucker for rainbows, the Rainbow Dawild. The coat, eyes and collar of these dogs could pass.

The final special breeding using the Into The Wild dogs was the Crazed Coat Into the Wild. From January 5, 2016 until February 5, 2016 you could breed any color Into The Wild K-9s together for the chance of getting one of the Crazed Coat Into The Wild. The coats were even more colorful, and included the very bright Rainbow wild eye, and of course, the Rainbow Crazed Coat Into the Wild Zebra. Woot! The coat, eyes and collar all have the ability to pass.

So many possibilities and so many colors! What will you be breeding?

The New Year Is A Great Time To Start ARU!

Then, drop your application for graduation in the orange mailbox at the back of the classroom (across from the registration kiosk).

Wiki Business!

Hello everyone! Its a terrific Tuesday here at Amaretto. I felt it nesscecary following the group chat lately this connection was needed to talk about this!

Where can you go to find a trait you’ve never heard of? The library? Google? Your closet? Nooooooo. The Amaretto Wiki pages! That’s right, Amaretto wiki has almost everything on it you are looking for, complete with pictures.

Each page has a list of certain traits you can scroll through, with the latest entries at the bottom. Click on the trait, and it opens another page If you don’t want to scroll, you can use the search function, which is in the upper right hand corner of each page.

Type in the trait you are looking for, such as Paisley eyes, and up comes a page with links to click to see where that eye is in the Wiki.

Scrolling through the Amaretto Wiki pages can give you ideas on what to look for if you’re doing a project, traits you might have but aren’t sure where they came from, or pictures to show you what is possible that you can drool over. It’s like spending a day at the library going through books crammed with information, but right at your fingertips. Remember, the Wiki is your FRIEND.

Another good thing is the Wiki is around 24/7 so check it out! This is Ava over and out! Happy breeding!

It’s getting cold outside so don’t forget the Socks!!

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

Today we are going to shine the spotlight on our Horses and the Sock trait.

The Sock trait was introduced with the Limited Edition 2013 Valentine Horses that were on sale from February 7, 2013 through February 22, 2013.

On February 7, 2013 a twist to the Limited Edition 2013 Valentine Horses was announced. If you breed a Limited Edition 2013 Valentine Horses with a Limited Edition 2013 Valentine Horses you will have the ability to get a new trait called Socks.

From October 1, 2013 through October 9, 2013 the Limited Edition 2013 Fall Horses were on sale. By breeding these Limited Editions with any other horse you had the chance at getting 1 of 4 new Sock colors, Black, White, Green or Rainbow.

Spring Editions were available from March 20th, 2018 to Tuesday April 3, 2018! Hiding inside these Spring Editions was the Daisy & Plumeria Sock!

Please note that socks are an alternative to hoof traits so you may only have one or the other on a horse.

A Null trait is an “Invisible trait”, a placeholder. These placeholders were implemented as a way to allow the breeder to have a maximum trait horse but still look the way they want it to look.

The Sock trait CAN be passed on.

For a closer look at socks check them out on the wiki at https://horse.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=Socks

Until next time this is Snookie hoping you have a great weekend and an amazing week ahead!

Happy Breeding!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR

Happy New Year Amaretto!

Every year, millions of people make New Year’s resolutions, hoping to spark positive change. The recurring themes each year include a more active approach to health and fitness, improved finances, and learning new things for personal and professional development. Chances are, more than a couple of the top 10 most common resolutions will look familiar to you:

  2. Lose weight
  3. Get organized
  4. Learn a new skill or hobby
  5. Live life to the fullest
  6. Save more money / spend less money
  7. Quit smoking
  8. Spend more time with family and friends
  9. Travel more
  10. Read more Many people make these resolutions as a way to commemorate the beginning of a new year

Over the years Amaretto has released many random drop traits to commemorate the holidays, from new coats to brands to eyes. For the past 5 years beginning with the 5.0 version horses they have celebrated the start of a new year with a random drop eye! All of these random drop eyes have the ability to pass.

In 2012, Amaretto released a set of Christmas SE dogs, which included the Happy New Years Dogue De Bordeaux. Lucky breeders discovered that the eyes and collar on these dogs passed!

You can find these random drop eyes on Amaretto horses, dogs, ponie pals, and chickens, and who knows, maybe a new one today! Happy Breeding and Happy New Year.
