Happy Friday Everyone! I hope everyone is ready for a fun filled Memorial Day Weekend. Many of you will be enjoying long weekends and have extra time on your hands. I had a wonderful vacation at the beginning of this month and visited two of the most amazing museums in Ohio. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame & Museum was just awesome to walk thru and see the many treasures it held. Then we headed to the Football Hall of Fame which was so cool. The bonus of going to this museum was that I actually got to meet one of the Amaretto Community, Kini Barbosa. I have included a picture of us meeting at the Football Hall of Fame for all of you to see below! It was so cool to meet in person!
My trip made me want to remind you all about the Amaretto Museum located on the University sim, this is a great place to spend some time! The University sim itself is beautiful but the Museum, wow it is so much fun to walk thru there and remember back to all the different Amaretto Horses that have been released since that wonderful September day back in 2010 when Amaretto Ranch galloped into Second Life. If that’s not enough to take in please don’t forget to walk thru the K-9 and Barnyard Bird areas, you are sure to find some cuties there that will make you smile.
I like to go to the Museum and look at all the Amaretto Horses there and then go out into the community and look around. It’s fun to see just what you guys have all done with the traits to make each of the horses unique and fun! It’s amazing to see the way the different coats look with various traits, especially the combinations you would have never thought of!
So this weekend take some time to go visit the Amaretto Museum look around at all the fabulous horses there, then head out to the many different markets in the Amaretto Community and maybe you’ll find the inspiration for your next breeding project.

 

Until next time, stay safe and Happy Breeding!!

Hi everyone and Happy Thursday!! Today I wanted to remind you guys that class are still being held at ARU! This is a great way to learn about any of our breedables if you are new to Amaretto. Even if you are a breeder that has been breeding for a long time this is also a great resource to learn something that you didn’t know!

The classes are held on Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday every week at 9 AM SLT and 5 PM SLT. You do not have to register or sign up to attend. Classes do not generally take a lot of time most last no more than 10 minutes. Every month we post the ARU schedule on the website as well as several of our locations in world. Here is the link to the ARU calendar
http://amarettobreedables.com/pages/calendar

There is also a ARU website that you can join to keep up with what classes you have taken and which classes you haven’t!
Link to ARU website:
http://amarettoranchuniversity.com/

If you have a suggestion for a class at ARU please drop a suggestion notecard in the mail box in the courtyard!

If you have taken a class that has not posted to the ARU website please file a ticket and let us know the class and the date you took it.
File your tickets at:
http://support.amarettobreedables.com
To receive credit for a class that you are taking you must turn in a notecard made by your avatar at the end of each class to the instructor!

All of the things are pretty simple and you may learn a thing or two about Amaretto Breedables that you did not already know. I would suggest for old and new breeders to attend!
Here is the inworld slurl for the ARU sim:

So, set some time aside to attend the ARU classes, they are not only fun but very informative!

Until Next Time….

I wanted to remind everyone what a great resource the Amaretto University is for breeders. As a professor at the University I can tell you that the classes are informative and fun to attend. You can ask the Amaretto Staff questions afterwards about the class and get answers right from us and not rely on that nasty rumor mill!
Once you start attending classes you will want to be able to keep up with which ones you’ve attended and which ones you still need. That means you will want to register on the ARU website so you can do that. While at the University there are kiosk’s in the back of the classrooms that you touch and they give you a username and password in local chat. Once you have that you can go to the Amaretto Ranch University website and log in! .
http://amarettoranchuniversity.com/

 

When you get to the website click on Course Progression and you will be able to enter your user name and password. From here you will be able to see what classes you have completed and which ones you still need to attend. I always tell people to give it at least a week to show up on the website as the University Chick is a busy girl!

 

Be sure to watch the Amaretto University Calendar for class schedules and I look forward to seeing you in class soon!

Until next time, Happy Breeding!

With sadness  I have the task of announcing to the Amaretto Community that yesterday’s Graduation ceremony at ARU will be the last graduation ceremony.  Because of the ridiculous actions of a few we feel we can no longer provide a graduation ceremony  that will please everyone.

We will still provide classes and we still encourage everyone that has a thirst for knowledge and not a greed for gifts that can be parlayed into profit to continue to attend the classes at ARU.  The classes we provide on the beautiful ARU sim are a valuable tool in breeding and we sincerely hope that everyone that attends leaves class with a better understanding of our products.

As one of the teachers there I can truly say it is a great feeling I get from seeing you all in class and I would like to extend a sincere thank you to everyone that attends the classes at ARU.

To be clear, you will still be able to attend classes and graduate from ARU but there will be no graduation ceremony or party.  We will still have classes and we still encourage you to attend them.

Amaretto and staff are on a never ending quest to get as many breeders to attend the classes at Amaretto Ranch University. The courses offered are very informative and help our breeders gain a higher understanding of Amaretto Breedables making raising, breeding, and selling a more enjoyable experience. Today was a very memorable occasion for 14 very dedicated breeders and students!

It is with great honor that I announce to you all, the graduating Class of April 4th 2013!! Each of the graduates received a graduation certificate and also received a special bundle for completing all of the ARU classes offered.
