    ... oh and best of all, everyone of us can type in any price we want .. and ALL of US can pay what we want. :))
    I dont remember running into any "Price or Buy Police" yet on SecondLife. Although I could be wrong, as i have been in many things. But I'm still learning :)

    You're more than welcome to laugh at them all the way to the bank but huffing because someone decides my cancer ruby vamp for sale for 3k is better just makes you look like an ass.

     

    That's rather rude!

     

    If you feel happy selling your horse for 3k that's your choice.  No need to get personal.

    Christ on a crutch, it wasn't meant personally. It was a generalized statement about generalized elitists.

     

    Whoever is willing to pay the pricetag for precisely what they want buys the right to call it whatever they want. If they want to buy a beautiful 1651651th generation GENUINE VAMP(TM) just to starve it green and rename it "desolation incarnate" they can. And if they want to pay less for my walmart brand ruby eyed vamp and name it Akasha, then that's fine too. If they want to buy out both of our barns to feed their gryphons, that's their business.

     

    If you have decided that only this or that eye makes a vampire horse, or a ghost horse, or whatever, then breed for that.

    But someone with the money to spend also gets to decide what is and isn't IN THEIR OPINION.

     

    There's no need to get elitist about it either way, be it which eyes or what price we're setting. Let your horses speak for themselves.

     

    ANYWAYS CAN WE GO BACK TO TALKING ABOUT PRETTY HORSES?

    I dropped an Up/Long double warmth black walker the other day and I'm trying to decide what eyes I should try to breed into her babies. Opinions? Those violet look attrocious.

    True Vamp Horse will survive as the original one JS Esterwood produced. I have discussed this line with JS very extensively and over the last 6 months have produced my strong Vampire Sepluchre line. These horses are and will remain the original from His long breeding program. This program was NOT to get the most traits in a horse, it was to ISOLATE the black walker, garnet eye, long mane, long tail, gloom hair, gloom coat ONLY and that equaled VAMP. Garnet is the only eye color to duplicate BLOOD. Hence the Vampire Horse = BLOOD and GLOOM = VAMPIRE Fire Element eye is like a Hell Horse, why won’t someone start that line. Garnet Heart Shine eye, why won’t someone make a love horse out of it. (In my opinion the ruby eye is not a blood eye it’s too white).
    I in fact have been breeding what I call "The New Demon Horse" since Amaretto has retired the Demon. Same Traits as the Vampire Horse but like you said more demonic with the Fire Element Eye.
    I figured if someone can create their own horse, hense "The Vampire Horse" why can't I create one as well. Here are a few pics of my hard work & time put into the project. I am also considering throwing in the hair warmth on a few.

    I think the 'true vampire horse' is quite frankly, bull. I think a black horse, long long, double gloom with red eyes should enough. It looks GREAT and when you are roleplaying, are you REALLY looking at the 'design' on the eyes? No! You see a lovely horse with red eyes.

    i think it's more the challenge than the total aesthetic of it.

    i think the fire eye and hair warmth sounds deliciously evil for a demon. cuz they did have the dark red in their coat.

    Definately the hair warmth for the "Demon" style horse. But,also maybe, for the "Demon" how about coat chill on a black walker combined with the hair warmth?

    Yes exactly they had the red/black tint to their hair color. That's why I'm going to throw some hair warmth into them and see how it turns out. I think they will be awesome. I like them as they are now as well. Just getting these exact traits is hard enough then to try to add yet another trait like the hair warmth will sure be a challenge ; )

    According to the vampire community, a true vampire horse is: Black Walker Garnet eyes Long Mane Long Tail Coat Gloom and Hair Gloom. No Lusters or Gleems. So the Vamp Horse is a 6 traited horse no more no less.

    and what is "the vampire community" pray tell?

    You realize anybody can buy or even make fangs in about 5 minutes?

    I have a roleplaying alt whose a vampire, doesn't my opinion count? lmao. or is there a particular brand of fangs you have to buy for your opinion to matter?

    Seriously, in a world where anybody can do or be whatever they want then it's kind of pointless to make a statement like that.

    The Amaretto community is a very large group too. I am not a Vamp myself but I still love the Vamp Walkers so am I allowed to buy them too? And if I like the look of an Ultra Vamp is that ok? It doesn't have to be just for the Vamp community, I am talking about expanding outside that community with some variations. I agree that the original Vamp walker has those traits but I think breeding out some variatons would give the amaretto community something to work towards and could breath new life into the amaretto community. I don't see a problem with that.

    i see no problem either, i would just give them different names. it's nice to have one standard for one name of horse. if you throw fire element eyes and hair warmth and call it a demon, then that's one more horse to shoot for... instead of arguing you wanna call that a vamp too and then causing friction with something that has been established (even if it's within a certain group).

    the more "specialty horse" variety we have the better for the community as a whole. if the general consensus says garnet eyes, then great. make your own horse and give it a name and start a new trend. they did.

    In my opinion, it is completely irrelevant whether a Vampire horse should have garnet eyes or ruby eyes. Again, it is irrelevant whether it should have long long gloom gloom traits. The only requirement should be that there is a general consensus among people as to what they understand the term “Vampire horse” refers too. Since most users (and importantly, vampire role players) prefer the simple garnet eye upon a Black Walker coat, with additional long long gloom gloom traits then I am happy to accept that as the definition.

    It is right that other genetic combinations may be more (or less) attractive, but when you are playing any game (whether it be a sport such as football or an online virtual game such as Amaretto horse breeding ) you need a clear set of criteria in order to proceed with the game. For example, there is a general consensus that a goal is achieved in soccer when the ball crosses over the white goal line between the goal posts – if you wanted to kick a ball around the local park and placed two piles of clothing upon the ground, it is clear that there is no need for either a chalked goal line or two upright goal posts – all that is needed is that there should be a consensus between those who play the game as to what the constraints and accepted rules are. Likewise the same principle MUST occur here too. We are involved in playing an online Amerreto horse breeding game and we need clear constraints and accepted conventions in order to proceed. Given that principle, I accept the conventions laid down by the majority of other users and it is to these “rules” that I am continuing with my game.

    Aside:

    This following paragraph relates to those who are interested in Vampire horses but is not directly linked to the main discussion theme regarding “What is a Vampire horse?” However it may be of interest to those who have been posting or following this thread:

    If you like Vampire horses, there is a fun photograph competition which may be perfect for you. Simply submit any photograph of any garnet-eyed Black Walker in a suitable “sinister” location and you may stand a chance of winning a beautiful baby garnet starshine-eyed Black Walker foal as the prize. The photos may be shopped or not – the choice is yours. The only constraint is that the setting of the photograph should be sinister or appropriate to the theme of vampires. By the time the competition closes, next weekend, this delightful baby foal prize will have grown into a young mare and be at full fervour and ready for studding.

    … and now back to the main discussion, what is a Vampire horse?

    I have dilema - why garnet is better than ruby? I think ruby gem is much more vampirish :)) So ...Pure Vamp horse must be long long , double gloom and garnet eyes - but if have ruby eyes is also vampire horse or not rlly ?

    well i was jsut at the red barn and the highest bid on a horse there is a garnet eyed vamp with 7 hours left and the bid is up to 22k. and that's the highest horse price there. so i'd probably try to get a garnet eye in there, i don't think ruby will get that good a price.

    imo, a vamp horse is one that's the classic pitch black steed any classic vampire would be riding. It is a stereotype of darkness. So the non-shiny, double long double gloom garnet eye BWalker. Anything else is just a nicely traited walker. Maybe even if it's also a stallion it would be the 'perfect' vamp.

    I think a Fire eye would seem fitting for a Hell Horse.

    Anybody can call anything they breed whatever they want... its all good! Some of us are going for the Black Walker, garnet, LLGG and calling it a vamp. We are into the trait isolation game... its fun, exciting and challenging! There are no hard rules .. except enjoy what you do.

    I think we should have more emphisis on good, planned breeding like this... I go to the auctions all the time and there are very well, carefully bred horses (mine included) that do not sell because they are't the flavor of the day. If we had more of these sorts of horses where the demand was centered on good breeding and specific traits perhaps the market would improve... You see it has helped the Black Walkers.
