Let’s Get Horny!

Hey Everyone

For my connection today I wanted to take a look at the very many horns that there are for the horses! there are so many different varieties to meet everyones projects or breeding needs!
The Horn was the 23rd trait on the horses and started with the Bloom, Shadow, Spirit and Heart horn that came from the Limited Edition Valentine Treasure horses back in 2014.
Since then there have been many more released:

As you can see there are many and they are the perfect addition to any project.
I also want to wish everyone a Happy New Year and wish you all the best for 2018!.

Hugs Marku.

From Amaretto to you!!

With the holidays winding down I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you to each and everyone one of our many loyal breeders. Amaretto works long and hard with much blood sweat and tears to bring you the best breedables in secondlife.

We wish you all a very Happy New Year and are so happy to be spending it with all of you!! Stay tuned cause you will be seeing so much more from your fav breedable company!!

From Our Home to Yours

Happy Hump Day Fellow Breeders!

Since I will not be writing another Connection until after Christmas, I thought it would be nice for the Staff and Moderators to share a little of ourselves with the Community during this holiday season. So, I ‘poked and prodded’ each one and got a few tidbits to share with you!

Amaretto Ranch Owners/Creators: Josaphine & Jaysin Cooperstone

Josie & Jaysin are a real life married couple who reside in the Golden State of California. Josie is a Registered Nurse and Jaysin is a certified HVAC/R Technician. They both started playing Second Life as a hobby, found breedables and the rest is history! Jaysin said, “I started learning how to script basically as soon as my avatar’s feet hit the SL dirt.” When not overseeing the Amaretto Ranch operations, they both enjoy spending time with family. Josie, also, has interests in other real life business opportunities and Jaysin plays video games and does carpentry in his spare time.

General Manager: Avalon Crystal

Perhaps you’ve heard the slogan “Don’t Mess with Texas!” Well Texas girl Ava is not to be messed with either. She’s the Amaretto Copybot Killa! Actually, Ava is the sweetest person you could ever know. She stated, “I try to be there for everyone and to always listen and help.” Her twelve years experience in management helps her do a great job at Amaretto. Ava found Second Life by watching MTv True Life. In real life, she is recently married and enjoys spending time with friends, family and her gorgeous little puppies!

Assistant Manager: Jaymee Caproni

For those of you who may not know, Jaymee is Josie’s real life sister. She resides in sunny Southern California. “I have had many different jobs, from a 411 operator to a Licensed Vocational Nurse, but working for Amaretto has been the most exciting and fulfilling,” said Jaymee. When she’s not overseeing Amaretto Ranch University and the Moderators, Jaymee is the mother of four amazing children. Her idea of fun is sitting at home doing nothing but relaxing! She loves muscle cars (“Mopar!”) and playing Mortal Kombat!

Web Master & Script Wrangler: Tmzasz Luminos

A self professed, “geek by day, nerd by nite,” Tm keeps the Amaretto websites running smoothly and, along with Jaysin, does all the scripting for Amaretto. Tm hails from the State of Virginia and enjoys a wide gamut of hobbies. Some of them include computers, anime, photography, cooking, ham radio, electronics and, “pretty much anything else that either geek or nerd may apply to!” Tm says he found SL when looking for a MMORPG (Massively Multi-play On-line Role Play Game) and discovered it to be much, much more.

Graphics Wranglers: Chronic Stoneage, Nashville Cortes and Sylver Blu (Kat)

While Chronic and Nash’s busy schedule did not afford me the opportunity to interview them, they are an integral part of the design team. Chronic hand pants every texture, while Nash designs and creates all sculpts. Oh, and Nash loves robots! Remember the Amarettobürger?

Kat is the newest member of the Amaretto design team. He currently calls Louisiana home. In Kat’s own words, “I love to play video games, collect shiny things, make cosplay, drink excessive amounts of coffee, and draw!” He has two cats and a wonderful fiancé who he calls his “radiant muse.” His dream is to create video games. Despite being ‘new’ to the team, he has actually been working with Amaretto for the past two years on various projects. “You’ve already seen my work as part of the Ponie Pals and the 2017 Thanksgiving coats! I’m very excited about what I can bring to Amaretto in the future, and hope you will be to!” he said.

Moderators: Anaconda Carter, Lamia Starspear, Markus Margulis, Bastian Hax, Snookiegirl Resident and myself, Blush Topaz

Ana is another California girl. She resides near Yosemite Yosemite National Park in the Sierra Nevada mountains. She describes it as, “one of the best places to see waterfalls.” Ana is a snake breeding, chihuahua owning, craft obsessed grandmother! She is, also, a karaoke fanatic! As Ana said, “without music, what else is there?” She used to own real life horses but now she just owns the Amaretto kind. I’d say she is a bit of TV nostalgia buff as well, professing, “I still have every single episode of the TV series Beauty and The Beast on VHS!”

For those that know Lamia, know she’s a dragon! An SL dragon! Lamia has been on SL for over 7½ years and has been breeding Amaretto from the beginning. She loves them all! She states, “I’m also a HUGE collector and my favorite part of Amaretto is breeding for those special coats.” When not doing her Amaretto thing, Lamia enjoys role-playing, online gaming and chatting with friends on Skype. From the Great Lakes State of Michigan, she juggles being a single mother with a full-time job, and said, “WHEW, that’s a lot on my plate but it all works out!”

From across the pond (Atlantic Ocean) comes our handsome Dane, Marku. Not only does Marku love Amaretto animals, but real life animals as well. In his free time, he volunteers at an animal rescue center near his home in Denmark. He, also, has a close connection with the local vet to help with animals. He lives with his two teenage daughter, two bulldogs, a bearded dragon, a big aquarium and thirty pet rats. He told me they are all rescues, except for the daughters! “My heart and soul belongs to my kids and animals,” he said.

Our kilt wearing Scotsman is Bazza! He stays busy running a breedable market, which he owns with Marku. Together they created ‘The Amaretto Community’ website. The goal for the website and it’s forum is to “promote the community spirit and overall togetherness of our market, its users and breedable locations across the Second Life grid.” Bazza and Marku, also, host a fashion blog. Bazza stated, “I have a great big family in Second Life that I love to spend time with doing crazy stuff!” In real life, Bazza has a dog and three unusual pets – Tarantulas! “But, I love them all equally!” he said.

The Garden State of New Jersey (that’s SOUTH JERSEY!) is where Snookie calls home. In Second Life, Snookie loves to breed and interact with the Amaretto Community. She likes being a Moderator and ARU Instructor because it gives her the opportunity to help other breeders. “Seeing all the goodies the community posts every day is very enjoyable,” she said. In real life, she is an avid traveler and prefers cruises. She is, also, a mom of six, a grandmother of 13 and a great-grandmother of 3, “soon to be 4!” To quote her, “So that being said, my RL can be busy, especially during the holiday season!” But, I know she loves every minute of it!

Then there is me, Blush! I live in ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ with my four cats. I love anything literary, artistic and musical. I think in song lyrics! I have a collection of over 3000 books, mostly historical fiction and non-fiction and children’s stories. I worked for many years in the marketing side of both the medical and banking industries. I came to SL at the suggestion of a friend and love that it allows you to create your own virtual reality and be anything you want to be. My Amaretto addiction began with just one bundle!  Lastly, I want to let those, that may be having a hard time with the holidays, know that ‘YOU ARE NOT ALONE.’ #18002738255

In closing, I would like to share the immortal words of Tiny Tim from Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol, “Here’s to us all! God bless us every one!”

From our home to yours….HAPPY HOLIDAYS & HAPPY BREEDING!

P.S. If you’ve not gotten your Amaretto Christmas gift(s), please use this link to get the landmark:

Barnyard Bird Incubator!

Happy Tuesday Everyone! Can you believe Christmas is right around the corner?! It’s crazier than a cuckoo bird how fast this year went by! Speaking of birds… today I wanted to tell you all about the Amaretto Barnyard Bird Incubator.

When your Birds drop their own nests those will be non-starter Barnyard Bird nests.

An incubator is used for hatching your Barnyard Bird Nests.

The nest will take 60 minutes to birth after being sent to the incubator.

The incubator can birth up to 12 Barnyard Birds at one time.

Be sure to set out food if you are going offline while your nest are in the incubator.

To use the Incubator

Rez the incubator

Rez your Barnyard Bird Nest within 10m of your incubator

Left click your Barnyard Bird Nest and click incubate

Click yes to send to incubator

Your Barnyard will take 60 minutes to be hatched.

While the eggs are in the incubator you can click the incubator an get a list of the birds uuids that are in the incubator.
You may want to copy an paste that list of uuids on a notecard in case something happens during birthing.

If you have a Barnyard Bird that cannot rez due to lack of prims please give the incubator time as it will re-rez the Barnyard Bird when the prims are available.


Be sure to go pick up your Christmas 2017 Editions!

Happy bird birthing and breeding!

Until next time…..



Official Amaretto Market/ Auction House!

Hello everyone I am sooooo excited to tell you about a project that we have been working on with a few market owners and we want to extend it to all market owners and auction houses! We are rolling out a new exciting program starting TODAY!

We have been working with the markets that all have Amaretto Satellite location to come up with a guideline of standards for everyone to follow!

The follow markets are participating in the Official Amaretto Market./ Auction House:
Nest Egg
E & S Breedables
Misfits Breedables
KickAz Ranch
Xxtreme Oasis Breedables
myHorses Sales Yard

So keep an eye out for these signs!

What does this mean? Well we have taken into consideration all the comments made at the breeders round table, suggestion note cards and tickets. Things that are important to you our breeder and community.

We are currently working on a page on our website to list all Offical Amaretto Markets/Auction Houses along with their auction times!

To have an Amaretto satellite store you must be an Official Amaretto Market./ Auction House.

This is a new and exciting way that we hope will get buyers and sellers both to be happier with the 3rd party market!

If you would like your Market/Auction house to become av Official Amaretto Market./ Auction House please send a notecard to Avalon Crystal.

As for the official ~Amaretto Advertising Network~ which is owned by Amaretto we will follow the same standards as all Official Amaretto Market./ Auction House.

I really think that this is an exciting thing for all Owners to become a part of, its our way of supporting them and them support us.

Amaretto can not tell you what to sell or what not to sell for but I believe this will be the start of bring all sims and auctions to the same base standard so please check out your rental and see if it is an Official Amaretto Market./ Auction House.

I know some of you will have questions and really its simple know the rules where you rent and be sure to follow them and you will have no problems!

This is Ava over and out! Happy breeding everyone!


Exotic Birds!

Hi everyone and I hope your weekend is going great!

Today I wanted to take a moment to talk a little about Exotic Barnyard Birds!Exotic Birds are very special birds that can be born at random from ANY bird breeding combination. And the great thing about these special and rare birds is that they will give a gradual boost to the Vivacity of birds within 10 meters over a period of time! When you breed an Exotic Bird (whether it is with another Exotic Bird or any other bird) you DO have an increased chance at receiving another random Exotic Bird. The Exotic Birds are NOT able to pass their breed or eyes. However, you could get extremely lucky and birth another Exotic Bird. The non-Exotic offspring of Exotic Birds do NOT have an increased chance of producing Exotic Birds. Let’s take a look at this gorgeous birds below!


Egghead Noir

Egghead Rainbow


Rubber Chicken

As an added twist to the Barnyard Birds the Exotic Birds that are Special/Rare Birds have the possibility of being found in the Starter Packs**
Information on the Amaretto Barnyard Birds can be found here
