3.Find Mega Woof Vitamins from the options on the menu and click it.
Once the K-9’s stats have been updated the Mega Woof
Vitamins will disappear.

That’t right you guys have waited a long time and we have worked some hard hours, and finally its here!

***IMPORTANT NOTE***After Tuesday December 13, 2011 we will NO longer provide support for K9’s that are NOT v1.3***

So please update your k9’s!!!!

Update v1.3 Fixes/Changes:


1. Fixed menu issues (secondary menu not working).

2. Fixed K9 hud/K9 to now allow for a 30 character name.

3. Chew Toys now phantom.

4. Fixed update kennel to now have the K9 uuid in the description.

5. API now includes collar.

6. Kennel text now includes version number.


1. GPS now has set home position in the menu.

2. Added pregnancy booster 1% and 5%.

3. Added an on/off switch to the Chew Toy (turn it off instead of putting it into inventory).

4. Added Last Mating button to the K9 menu (button in the menu when clicked will show last K9 it mated with, name and uuid).

5. Last kennel button (button in the menu when clicked will show last kennel birthed by this K9).

Somethings you need to know about the updater:

1. It will not work if there is more than one updater out. It gives you a message that there are 2 updaters out please remove one. If you continue to try and update your K9 It will give you another error message and have you pick one updater up and reset the other. (touch and wait 5 seconds to reset)

2. It will not update pregnant K9’s. The reason being the updater can potentially abort the pregnancy. Waiting to update your pregnant K9’s will not effect the K9’s functions, they will continue to eat, move, animate etc. When they give birth to the kennel, then you can update them. The kennel will be the old version and need to be updated when birthed.

3. The updater will not work on sims with a high load. Dilation needs to be above .65 and region fps must be above 25 for the updater to work. You will get an error message that says the sim dilation is too low, we have enclosed a sim monitor that will display these values for you. Just rez on your sim next to the updater.

Update Instructions:

Single Updater: Place the updater near the K9 that isn’t updated and click the K9 and click the update button. The K9 will be updated and the settings will be the same as before the update process. ***DO NOT PICK UP K9’S OR THE UPDATER UNTIL IT HAS COMPLETED THE UPDATE PROCESS***

Bulk Updater: Place the bulk updater in the middle of your K9 breeding area, click the updater and adjust the settings you want your K9’s to be set to after the update process, then click the update K9’s button on the updater menu. This updater has the ability to update all K9’s that are not v1.3 in an entire region. However, depending on sim performance it may only do the K9’s in a 96 meter radius. Do not remove the updater until it has completed updating all K9’s and the hover text above the updater reads FINISHED. ***DO NOT PICK UP K9’S OR THE UPDATER UNTIL IT HAS COMPLETED THE UPDATE PROCESS***

Amaretto & Buckskins, a new twist on these Buckers.


Starting December 05, 2011 Amaretto is introducing a new ShowHorse from December 05 2011 until Jan 05 2012. We move from Richies Arabians to Josie’s favorite Buckskins.

• Starting December 05, 2011 at 12:01 am SLT any bundle dropped from the breeding of 2 Buckskins you have a chance at the bundle being an “Amaretto Buckskin Show Horse”!

• That’s it! The only qualification is they both have to be Buckskins, they can be any color! Mother & Father MUST BOTH be Buckskins.

• We will announce what horse is next close to the end of the 30 days of Buckskins!

• Breeding these Buckskin Showhorses just might be a little easier than you think. *winks*

• This twist is a game shaker because you won’t know what you get until one actually hits the grid!

• This Buckskin Showhorse will have a chance of passing its Special eye!

• So community lets breed them Buckskins and see what surprises they have in store! Good Luck!

Fervor/Heat !!

You can do several things to help your Horse or K-9 gain fervor/heat.


For a horse or k-9 to gain fervor/heat they must be at least age 7


The happiness level does effect fervor/heat. if the horse or K-9 is not 75% happy it will NOT gain fervor/heat. Also if the happiness falls bellow 75% it will stop gaining fervor/heat.


The horses or K-9’s do have to have breedable food to gain fervor/heat. If you start a horse or K-9 out on pet food it will have to eat breeder food for 7 days before it will be able to start gaining.


Riding a horse as well as salt licks will help ensure your horse gets above 75% happiness and builds fervor. Also Sugar Cubes will help boost happiness. Playing with your K-9 and chew toys will help your K-9 gain happiness, Rawhide lollipops gives a boost to happiness also.


Remember before filing a ticket about your horses or K-9’s not gaining fervor/heat be sure to check the info listed above to make sure all conditions are favorable for fervor/heat to be building.

Horse Feed!

Ok guys i thought it might be time to revisit this issue as i have seen some chatter about this in the group.

My food is going to fast?!

Well lets talk some facts.
A hungry horse will eat about 2 to 3 times more often then a horse that is not hungry. Let me give you an example of something

If you have 300 horses they will eat 300 foods every 4 weeks.

It is 1 food per horse per 28 days 300 divided by 4 weeks being 28 days is 11 foods a day is what 300 NON hungry horses will eat.

Food is not going any faster then it should be if you are having issues they could be due to sl itself or the horses could be hungry as stated….

This has been tested by Amaretto and others again and again……..

So rest assured that your horses aren’t eating any more than they did weeks ago… i encourage you guys to test this out yourself!

Well hope everyone is having fun gearing up for the upcoming holidays and happy breeding until next time………

Fervor and Heat Builders

I have had a couple of people ask me how can a newborn horse have 15% fervor or a newborn K-9 have 15% heat?


Well here’s the answer !


For Horses,one Amaretto Cocktail and One Amaretto Passion Pill can add a total of 15% fervor per day! That can add up quick. For K-9’s one Amaretto Brand K-9’s Mega Woof Vitamins and One Amaretto Puppy Love Pill can add a total of 15% heat per day! That can add up quick.


When your horse or K-9 reaches age 7 without having any (Passion Pills for horses),(Puppy Love Pills for K-9s) or (Cocktails for horses),(Mega Woof Vitamins for K-9,s) it then has to still reach 100 fervor/heat before it can breed which means it will be that much longer before your new bundle/kennel will be dropped.


If your newborn horse/K-9 is given a Passion Pill and a Cocktail (for horses) or Puppy Love Pills and Mega Woof Vitamins for K-9’s) each day from birth, that is 15% of fervor/heat added each day. So by the time the horse/K-9 reaches age 7 it will already be at 100 fervor/heat and will be able to get pregnant right away.


Another little known fact is even pregnant horses/k-9’s can be given the Passion Pills and Cocktails/ Puppy Love Pills and Mega Woof Vitamins in order to keep them primed and ready for breeding at all times. So if you have a really nice horse/k-9 that throws really nice offspring that would be a good candidate for you to keep ready to go at all times!
