There has been a lot of chatter lately about something that Amaretto addressed a long time ago, but I feel the need to revisit the topic again to clear up any rumors that are floating about.  Many people have been talking about the fact that some of the RFL horses are missing the Horse9 sculpt.  We have said from the start that this does not affect anything with the horses ability to produce Charmed.  The RFLs have parented Charmed and do have the ability to produced Charmed horses just like any other horse.  These horses are missing a sculpt but not the ability to produce certain horses.  I would hope this will ease any concerns and put all rumors “out to pasture”.  I would also like to remind everyone that taking the horses apart and removing scripts and sculpts from inside the horses is against the Amaretto Terms of Use and will not be tolerated.  So let’s all enjoy our horses in one piece and stay far away from that awful rumor mill!

When You File a Ticket !

Lets talk abour filing tickets
1. When you file a ticket about a horse not rezzing after  birthing it, please  have parent information handy  and add it to the ticket . This will save time an get your horse back quickly.
2. When filing a duplicate horse ticket you just purchased please have transaction information  added in the ticket .
3. When filing a missing horse/bundle  ticket have all the information you can about the horse /bundle as UUID or name  if needed parent information .
4. When filing a ticket for a  bundle  Please have parent information for that bundle .
5. When filing a ticket on not recieveing food …salt …….etc be sure to add  transaction history for your purchase .

When doing this your ticket will be answered in a timely matter 🙂 Have a great week !


Hey everyone well its a new week here at Amaretto! It came to my attention yesterday after watching the group I thought I should revisit the horse shoe that is inside the horse.

The horseshoe is there for one reason it is to preload the animations that all amaretto horses have. Every horse has the same horseshoe, one is not any better than another, there is no secret or special meaning behind the horseshoe.

If you have a horseshoe over your horses head all you need to change your horses setting to physical, it will disappear.

Color is also another myth sometimes the horseshoe may be rainbow color looking other times it may be Grey but don’t worry any color horseshoe does the same thing.

I heard a lot of rumors yesterday and just wanted to put all of them to rest. The horse shoe has nothing to do with breeding, connecting to the server, or version of your horse.

I have included a picture so you know what i am talking about 🙂

Well until next Monday, happy breeding everyone!!

Fervor and Happiness

I have seen some tickets lately that have been about fervor not rising. Your horses fervor will only rise if your horse is awake and above 75% happiness. Now there are many ways to increase the happiness of your horse, for starters riding is one of the ways you can increase the happiness just ride your horse some if he or she seems to be unhappy and not gaining happiness ( they have to be age 7 though before you can ride them). Another way you can raise the happiness is with salt licks, rezzing out a salt lick with your food will make your horses happier. Also you have several consumables at your disposal to help raise the happiness level some. Sugar cubes when used give your horse a 15% increase to the happiness ( they really like sugar but who dosent ) though you can only give this consumable to them once in a 24 hour period. The second consumable you can give them directly increases the fervor of the horse by 10% and that’s the passion pills again only one every 24 hours can be given. The third consumable that effects happiness also effects all the other stats of the horse and that’s the Amaretto Cocktail! This wonderful little concoction is just what your horse wants to feel happy and ready to start producing bundles by raising energy,happiness, and fervor by 5% and decreasing hunger and thirst by 5% ensuring that your horse can stay up late with his favorite mare! Note that again this consumable can only be given once every 24 hours. Happiness does naturally go down while the horse is sleeping but will come back up while its awake. Sometimes for whatever reason you may have a stubborn horse that dosent want to get happy or its fervor go up once its happy ( fervor can only rise once its age 7 ) if this happens just submit a ticket and send that horse on in so we can give it a checkup ( re-rezzing sometimes also fixes this ). I hope this has helped you with why your horses don’t seem to be increasing in fervor at times.

More Horse Jokes

How many horses does it take to change a light bulb?…

Any foal: The sun is shining, the day is young, we’ve got our whole lives ahead of us and you’re inside worrying about a stupid burned-out light bulb?

Shetland pony: I can’t reach the stupid lamp.

Appaloosa: No, don’t change it. If it’s dark, maybe no one will see me raiding the feed room.

Andalusian: Let the maid do it. I need to go roll in the mud.

Clydesdale: Och, and ye’ll just be usin’ up the ‘lectricity, ye’ will, better tae use a wee bit of candle…better yet tae not waste either and just gae tae sleep when the sun gaes doon. Electiricity is verra dear.

Tennessee Walker: (Hiccup) You’re doing it all wrong (hiccup)! You have to use all four feet!

Mustang: Lightbulb? Let’s go on a trail ride, instead. And camp. Out in the open like REAL horses.

Cleveland Bay: I’m busy. Make the whipper-in and the hounds do it.

Paint: Put all the lightbulbs in a pen, tell me which one you want, and my owner will bet you twenty bucks I can get it before the quarter horse.

The world’s most incredibly lazy man found a magic lamp.
He rubbed it and a genie appeared and granted him three wishes.
He wished for a horse, a sumo wrestler and a squirrel.
“They’re yours, but what are they for?” the genie asked.
“I’m tired of walking everywhere — I want to just ride the horse. The sumo wrestler is so that I won’t have to work to get on the horse.”
“But the squirrel?” asked the genie.
“I need something to go ‘click-click’ to start the horse!!!”

Subject: ATTN: New Virus!!!!
This is a warning!

Please be aware that there is a new version of an old virus circulating called “Horse_Crazy_11.” Upon receiving this virus your computer will automatically create new system files that will detect when you are online and download pictures of horses to your hard drive. It will replace your current wallpaper with horse pictures, fill up your online bookmarks/favorites menu with Horsemall links and change your sound scheme to “barn noises.” It will automatically create a biological agent and place it in your barn…Requiring you to constently check for new bundles.

There is no proven time table for this virus. Symptoms could appear at any time upon its reception. Once it has installed the biological agent in your barn – it cannot be removed. REPEAT… THIS VIRUS CANNOT BE REMOVED!!

It is insidious and clever – it will work its way into your sentiments and you will never be able to get rid of it…
