Hello all my favorite breeders!! Do you ever wish you could bring Amaretto into real life with you? Well… we’ve found a way for you to do so… The Amaretto Store located on the Amaretto Social Network!! Check out the four categories where you will find a lot of Amaretto items in the store from shirts to hats to blankets! So come check out our many items, with more to come, you just have to go check it out!

Happy Shopping!

Lets Talk K-9’s Food

Your K-9’s will eat approximately once every hour. If food is not present

their hunger and thirst will rise until it reaches 100% at which time they

will get sick, this will take 3 days. A Vaccination can be used to

Heal your K-9 or they will eat their way out of sickness in

approximately 3 days.
Breeder Food is for K-9’s you wish to breed once they reach 7 days old.
Pet Food is to be used when you do not wish to breed your K-9’s. If you

decide to breed your K-9 after feeding it Pet Food, it will take 7 days on

Breeder Food for the effects of the Pet Food to wear off.

1.Rez the food/water within your K-9’s set range.

(a K-9′s default range is 5 meters)
2.Can click the food/water to change options and see remaining %.

Options include Owner only, Group only, and All.
Owner only: Will only be consumed by the owners K-9’s.
Group only: Will only be consumed by K-9’s in the same group

as the food/water is set to.
All: Any K-9 within range of the food/water will be able to consume it.
Once the food/water has been completely consumed it will disappear.
If you are having issues with your K-9 not eating please try the following

tricks before filing a ticket.
1. Re-rez fixes 99% of the issues.
2. If the land is set to a group, are the K-9’s and food set to that group?
3. If the land isn’t set to a group, are the K-9 and food set to the same

group as each other?
4. Check to see if the K-9 is set to the type of food out (more stats)
5. Re-set home position.
6. Sometimes giving them a K-9 Treat will help them start to eat so you may

also want to try this. Remember your K-9’s only eat once every 43 minutes

so you may not

notice a change immediately, be patient it takes 3 days for a K-9

to reach 100% hunger.

A Null trait is an “Invisible trait” , A placeholder.


These placeholders are being implemented as a way to allow the breeder to have a maximum traited horse , but still look the way they want it to look.


Example 1


Dont like luster or brands ? Try these traits in your Horse


Coat Luster Null

Hair Luster Null

Branding Null


Example 2


This horse appears as a L/L white walker with gleam. But in reality its an 11 traiter as the Null is actually a breedable trait.



11 T White Walker

Version 3.2

Coat: White Walker

Eye: Pluto Galaxy

Mane: Long

Tail: Long

Coat Gleam High

Hair Gleam Null

Coat Luster Null

Hair Luster Null

Coat Opal Null

Branding Null


To give you a better idea also here is a full list of all Null Traits

But hey it was a good time and was for a good cause! We raised over 50k  in linden!  That went into the Relay For Life Kiosk, that will go towards our team total! I have included a couple of pics from the party!

Advertisements on the website

Hello everyone its the Webmaster Tmzasz here and today I wanted to talk you about the advertising system on the Amaretto website. All ads currently are priced at a flat rate per week ( no worries about having views or clicks expire just straight time ). Currently ads are priced in 4 tiers:

1 Week Rotations cost 10$USD or 2500L$ and will run 1 week from the date of Approval.

Now for the technical information you need to know about your future ad!

Ad Titles are limited to 25 characters

The logo for your ad can be any size up to 180 x 180 ( Pixels )

The body of your ad is limited to 135 characters

We review all ads placed in the system to ensure they are appropriate ( no profane language etc. etc. )

Placing an ad to advertise your market, your stud service or even your store is really simple just follow these steps:

First click on the button at the top that says Advertising and a new page will open.

Then Click on the red Create an Ad to open the ad editor/package selector.

Choose a package and click the blue Create an Ad button to go to the editor, in this window there will be a preview for your ad as you create it helping you decide exactly how your ad will appear ( the preview is actual size ).

If you have created an ad campaign already ( previously created an ad ) then you can add the new ad to that campaign if not you can enter a campaign name below if you want. ( Its only used to group your ads for your convenience )

Next if your ad has a URL ( like an in world SLUrl ) copy and paste it into the URL box so that when they click on the ad it takes them to the url.

Enter a title for your ad like So and So Stud Service.

Then give your ad a body text ( explain what you are advertising )Finally Upload your ad logo ( remember it has to be 180 x 180 or smaller )

Press continue and a new section drops down be sure its set to today’s date for start date and press continue

Once you press continue you will be asked to place order or edit ad. Please review your ad and make sure its how you want it. Press Place Order to submit your ad and proceed to the Pay With Pay Pal screen. This takes you to the Pay Pal Payment Gateway where you can complete your order and have your ad placed in the review queue. Within 24 hours we will review your ad and either approve it ( at which point the package starts but not before) or Deny it and send you a message with why it was denied ( refunds are issued if you chose not to place the ad after this ).You can also pay for the ad inworld using L$ here

I hope this helps everyone understand the Advertising system on the website. Enjoy


Group Notices

We have been hearing that some of you are not getting notices when we send them. Most of our notices are sent out in all of the following groups:


Amaretto Ranch Breedables

Amaretto Ranch Multi Language Group

Amaretto Ranch K-9’s

Amaretto Ranch Boomtown

Amaretto Ranch Beta Testers

Amaretto Ranch Barnyard Birds

Amaretto Market Owners Coalition

Amaretto Ranch University

Ava’s Amaretto Answers Group

Amaretto Advertising Network


Only Amaretto Staff can send notices in these groups with the exception of Amaretto Advertising Network.


I know that getting a lot of group pop up notices can be annoying and you can turn off this feature on each group at the lower right corner under group info, but our notices are important.


We also know that if you are not online, your group notices can be capped causing you to miss some important notice. Well here’s a solution to that.


You can check for current notices everyday by doing these simple steps:


1. Open group


2. Go to group info


3. Notices tab


4. Left click on date


5. Last notices will appear


6. You can left click on the notice you wish to view and you can read it or retrieve any attachments


Here’s hoping this helps you from missing out on important or fun stuff

So today is Friday the 13th. We are a lil off here at Amaretto, (as if ya’ll didn’t know) and thought it would be cool to do something interesting for this rare day.

Happy breeding, and safe weekend to ya!

Hello Everyone!!!

It is Tuesday and i have some wonderful info for you all about the Barnyard birds.

As we get closer in beta to the final stages it is now the time that we come to you the community to give us your opinions and then allow you all to vote. What am i talking about you ask? Well since we are nearing the final stretch of the Barnyard Bird Beta and release is getting closer we do ask you all for your advice on what to name the points that you will get when sending them into Barnyard Sanctuary this means just like the horses we have Horse cents and for the k9s we have kennel cash (both were brought to us by you, the community) we do ask for you to send a NC in make sure you name it Barnyard Sanctuary Points Suggestion and send it to Mazelina Menna.

Most of you know JJ Cerna and Ancient Biscuit as the Amaretto Horse and K9 avis well Mazelina Menna is the Barnyard Bird avi and all sales of products that deal with the Barnyard Birds will be through her so just keep that in mind as we get closer 🙂 I really hope everyone is as excited as i am about the Barnyard Birds and that you all are ready for them to hit the grid so keep your eyes open 🙂
