BCA Auction Recap!

Hey everyone its a Super Sunday here at Amaretto Ranch! I wanted to brag on all of you guys for a moment. I have said before and will continue to say that the Amaretto community is one of the best in secondlife!

About 2 weeks ago i sent out a call for breeders to send in donations for the BCA Auction that we would be hosting on October 26, 2016. I was very moved by just the amount of donations that I had received it was so many that we had to have 2 auctions!

There was everything from Charmed, Excotics, Retired LE, Albinos, Siblings, Elementals, Zodiacs, and sooo much more!

I am soooo pleased to announce that together as a community you guys have raise well over 440,000 Linden!!! Amazing job everyone!


I have to say thanks you to the Amaretto staff that helped at the auction, The Nest Egg for hosting the auction. The biggest Thank you all of goes to all the breeders! The ones who donated amazing breedables and those amazing breeders that were there to bid and raise the bids!

I love when we all pull together for a great cause and i thank everyone for attending and making it such a great success! Not to mention listening to me for over 4 hours!

I hope everyone has a great week and do something to make a stranger smile because we all need it! This is Ava over and out! Happy breeding everyone!!

Spotlight on Rocky Horror Event

Happy Thursday!  I wanted to start off my Spotlight this week by sending out an enormous thank you to our amazing Amaretto Community for all the Buyers and Donors at yesterday’s Auction for Breast Cancer Awareness!!! You guys always show up big time for good causes and this was no exception!!  Thank you to Amaretto’s own Avalon for being the awesome auctioneer for this great event! You Rock Ava!! 

Now I want to tell you about the next event we have coming which is going to be a good one! On Friday October 28th at 3pm slt Rebel Yell Concerts is going to put on a special Rocky Horror Picture Show performance for the Amaretto Community!  The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a 1975 musical comedy horror film that has become a cult classic!  Everyone has hopefully done “the time warp again!” 



If you have never been to one of the Rebel Yell Concerts before you definitely need to plan on attending this one!  When they performed Grease for us not that long ago it was fantastic so we know this is going to be a great time for everyone!

Transformation Tuesday!

Its transformation Tuesday here at the ranch and man have we been hard at work! After much debate about the amount of sims Amaretto has versus the amount of prims we were using we have decided to consolidate some of our sims. So here is the break down!

We have made the decision to do away with the Amaretto Boomtown, Amaretto Ranch University, and the Amaretto Haven sims.

Please know that we have place haven, puppy paradise, and bird sanctuary boards at all locations including the main stores. This does not mean that we will not be adding to these in the future. So any rumor you have heard about haven horses going away is simply NOT true.

Amaretto Ranch University has been moved to what used to be the haven sim! So now all class will be held at the following location:


We have also relocated the dock where we hold fishing events, we will still host fishing events from time to time at the following location:





AMOC has also received a new home but don’t worry there is still those monthly meetings to be had heres your new uber to the AMOC meeting location and donation boxes!


For my racing breeders don’t worry we still have your practice and training track we have just moved it over a little so be sure to change your landmark to:


Remember if you don’t landmark all of these special places you can always find them on our locations page on our website which has been updated!

So please spread the word and delete those old landmarks. There will be a 100 linden fee for anyone who messages me asking why they can no longer get to boomtown or the ARU sim! 🙂

This is Ava over and out! Happy Breeding everyone be sure to go check out the new Amaretto areas! Also I am encouraging everyone tomorrow to join me at 1 PM for our BCA Auction 100% of the proceeds will go to the BCA Kiosks!

Wanna Play??

Monsters, stalking through the night,
Halloween is the Night of Fright.
Fear is what this night brings,
Along with many other things.

Are you sure you are prepared?
Tonight is not for the easily scared.
Creatures from hell roam on this night,

Trick or treat you say,
You should not have waited until the end of the day.
Tonight you will lose your tricks and treats,
For the monsters need to eat.

Amaretto Ranch Breedables is no different and we are getting ready for Halloween! We like a little fright and have some scary monsters just to honor this night!
That’s right guys the time is here to let the nightmare begin with these scary 2016 Halloween Edition animals!

Introducing to you:
2016 Halloween Edition Wanna Play? and 2016 Halloween Edition Whinny the Puppet! These horses will surely frighten and just wait until you see what they will unveil!


Lets not forget our K-9 friends just for you we have 2016 Halloween Edition Whinny the Puppet!
This spine-chilling K-9 will also have surprises that will appear!


Now to haunt you with some Barnyard Birds from your past! We have brought back Halloween Edition Frankenbird and his Bride! One of our cutest I mean hauntingly chilling Barnyard Birds in my opinion the 2016 Retro Halloween Edition – Frankenbird and 2016 Retro Halloween Edition – Bride of Frankenbird but they have some new Mr. & Mrs. eyes but that’s not all there is also a mystery surprise!


I know most people won’t even read far enough to see this but……. you DO NOT! I repeat DO NOT have to breed these Halloween animals together to get a trick or a treat! These will be available from October 21, 2016 to November 4, 2016!!

The Bird Sanctuary will reward you with the Henny Penny for age and traits.
You can spend these Henny Penny rewards at any vendors located at the Amaretto Birds Stores an also on the Barnyard Bird Vendors on the Amaretto Haven Sim.

So be sure this is what you want to do when sending Amaretto Breedables to Haven, Paradise or Sanctuary because there is no turning back after sending them!

Bundle Updater Fix!

Hello Amaretto Community and Happy Wednesday! How is everyone liking the new 5.5 update? I hope you all are getting excited as the new surprises start to reveal themselves on the grid!! Now on to an issue that we are aware of with all regular horses that have the saddle and wing trait. These horses may have a white, non-textured horn sculpt attached to a horse that does not have a horn showing in the stats. We are releasing a new bundle updater to help eliminate this issue. All you need to do is head on down to any of the Amaretto Ranch Breedables Horse store locations and pick up the new Bundle Updater box. The Bundle Updater box will say FIX on it. All you need to do when you receive a bundle that is a regular horse model with the wing and saddle trait together, is update it using the Bundle Updater Fix. This will eliminate the white, non-textured horn sculpt from showing up on that bundle once birthed. You can then birth the bundle and have no further issues with it showing the white, non-textured horn sculpt. This will also eliminate the need to file a support ticket once the bundle is birthed and has the extra white, non-textured horn sculpt. I am including somethings you need to know about the updater:

1. You can update up to 15 bundles at one time

2. The bundles have to be in range of the updater (5m radius)

3. Bundles must have “SUCCESSFULL_BUNDLE” in the UUID to be updated

4. There is an option to turn on/off range indicator on the updater (must have particles enabled on your sl viewer)

5. Can only update a bundle once and will only update 2.4 and higher bundles

Updater instructions:

Rez the updater out and select “range on” from the updater menu. Place up to 15 bundles within the range area of the updater and select “update” from the menu. ***DO NOT PICK UP BUNDLES OR THE UPDATER UNTIL IT HAS COMPLETED THE UPDATE PROCESS***. When the updater reads “Done” you may then pick up your updated bundles and repeat to update more bundles.



Happy bundle updating and breeding!

Until next time……
