Looney Legs!

Hey everyone Happy Saturday! I hope you all are enjoying your weekend so far.

Today the spotlight is shining on the Looney Legs trait!

Looney Legs were introduced to breeders on June 1, 2016! The Looney Leg replaced the Crazed Horses.

To get a Looney Leg you had to breed two horses that have the trait that was announced for that particular month!

Looney Legs do have the ability to pass!

So go ahead and pick your favorite and get looney!!

Until next time this is Snookie hoping you have an amazing weekend and an even better week ahead!


Here Boy! Fetch!

Did you know that by using the K9 HUD, you can play fetch with your Amaretto K9? And that playing fetch helps raise its happiness? How do I play fetch with my Amaretto dog you might ask. Funnily enough, I have that answer.

First select a dog to use, make sure its awake, then turn on movement. If you don’t already have a HUD, click the dog menu/help/get HUD.

After attaching the HUD, click the dog’s menu/ HUD, then click connect on the HUD. It should change to connected and the dog’s name will appear over the connected part.

Click the green Get Ball button – This will send a ball to your objects.
Wear the Ball – it will attach to your hand
Click Ball to set range for the distance at which the ball will be thrown. You can choose from 20, 40, 60, or 100 meters. Make sure you don’t throw it off your own land or your dog might disappear!
Click the Fetch button on your HUD
You will see the mouse look button at the bottom of your screen click that to go into mouse look
Aim where you want to throw the ball and left click your mouse to throw the ball.
Your K-9 will run and retrieve the ball and bring it back to you as you will see it back in your hand and you can throw it again and again while your K-9 retrieves it for you.

One of the benefits of playing fetch or even just attaching the dog to the HUD is that they receive an incremental boost in happiness. When you are done playing with that K9 just click disconnect, and pick up your dog. Remember to rez the dog back by it’s food and reset home. You can only wear and connect one dog at a time to the HUD for playing fetch, but isn’t this more fun than just tossing the dog a chew toy?

Here is the K9 Wiki showing some of the other fun things you can do with the dog HUD

Nightfall Wings!

Hey guys its a Thursday! I wanted to take some time out and remind you guys about the awesome nightfall traits!

These are throwbacks from 2017, did you breed 2017 Limited Edition Fall Horses? Well if you did then you might have just been lucky enough to get a surprise one of these five wings!

Who can get one of these new nightfall wings? Anyone breeding 2017 Limited Edition Fall Horse!
How many do 2017 Limited Edition Fall Horse do I have to have to get a new wing?
You only have to have 2017 Limited Edition Fall Horse!

If you know your Amaretto Horse history you know that the first wings came from 2012 Limited Edition Fall Fantasy Horses!

So we thought it would be very appropriate for the 2017 Limited Edition Fall Horse to pass some brand new wings!

Here are all the Night Fall wings:

Cornucopia Night Fall

First Frost Night Fall

Ice Wine Night Fall

Pumpkin Night Fall

Autumn Leaves Night Fall

Remember you can put opals on the Nightfall wings and they will look amazingly different! Check out all the opal wings here:

I hope that everyone has had a wonderful day and got some awesome drops! This is Ava over and out! Happy breeding!

Eaten Pet Food

Happy Hump Day Breeders!

Have you had or seen an Amaretto animal that showed “Eaten Pet Food” in their hover text? Let’s talk about why that happens and how to prevent it!

First, on all breedable Amaretto animals, breeder food is the default. To change the food, it has to be done manually via the menu. There have been instances where breeders have started newly birthed horse, K-9, or bird/duck on pet food. Then, around 6-7 days old, changed over to breeder food and wondered why “Eaten Pet Food” is showing on the hover text.

The reason being, if you put a horse, K-9, or bird/duck on pet food, it will take a full 7 days on breeder food for the effects of the pet food to wear off and the “Eaten Pet Food” text to go away. Please note: This applies only to horses, K-9s, and Barnyard birds/ducks as Ponie Pals do not have pet food.

During this time, your horse, K-9, or Barnyard bird/duck will not gain fervor, heat, or vigor. So, essentially, you have delayed your breeding availability. Therefore, it is suggested, that any animal you intend to breed should not be given pet food.

Take a look at the difference between breedable food and pet food:

How they differ: Breeder Food on the right, Pet Food on the left.

If at any time, you experience a breedable that does not seem to be eating at all, please try the following tricks before filing a ticket.

  1. Re-rez (this usually fixes 99% of the issues)
  2. If the land is set to a group, are the breedable and food set to that group?
  3. If the land isn’t set to a group, are the breedable and food set to the same group as each other?
  4. Check to see if the breedable is set to the type of food out (under more stats)
  5. Re-set home position.
  6. Make sure the home position is set within range of the food (default range is 5 meters)

For horses or K-9s, sometimes giving them a Horsey Snack or K-9 Treat will help them start to eat so you may, also, want to try this. Remember your horses, K-9s, and birds/ducks only eat once every 43 minutes so you may not notice a change immediately, be patient. It takes 3 days for a horse or K-9 to reach 100% hunger, and 4 days for a bird/duck to reach 0% hardiness.

Additionally, if you ever have an issue with ANY breedable, the handy-dandy Wiki is available to answer your questions. You can find them at the following links.

On September 1st 2020 Amaretto celebrated their 10th bday! One birthday surprise that was announced was the Vaporwave Horses! It was announced that you could have your chance at getting a Vaporwave horse by breeding together any two Gem Crown horns listed on this link:

Happy Breeding!!

Look How BIG I Am!

I have frequently been asked by breeders which coats of horses were bigger or smaller than others, and made a rough guess based on the few I had rezzed at the time. Well this time I decided to dig out all I had of the different coats and measure them to see exactly which was which. Here you see a measuring tape with meters on it. Using the adults I had in storage lined up from largest to smallest you can see the really large Haven Horse Kaiila, the Belgian which is the same size as a Clydesdale. In between those two should be a Percheron, but I did not have an adult. Next up is the regular size horse sculpt, the Exmoor which is the same size as the Pottok Pony. Again, no adult Pottok. The Fell Pony and Falabella are also same size, then Haven Donkey, Shetland, and Miniature.

The second picture shows newborn Percheron and Belgian. The Perch is just slightly bigger than the Belgian, maybe half an ear LOL.

This picture shows a newborn Pottok Pony which again, is just slightly bigger than the Fell Pony.

I hope this will give those who were curious an answer. It certainly was interesting comparing the sizes and sculpts. Happy Breeding

Well these are super awesome horses! I hope to see them out on the market! Happy breeding everyone! This is Ava over and out!

Awesome Amaretto Ducks!

Happy Hump Day Breeders!

Today, the spotlight is on the youngest Amaretto breedable – The Amaretto Barnyard Ducks. These awesome birds can walk or fly by your side and can swim in Linden water! Let’s have a look at the different Starter and Non-Starter Breeds available.

On October 8, 2018, the Barnyard Ducks came flying into the Amaretto Barnyard. They all began with Starter Breeds that are sold in packs at the Amaretto Barnyard Bird stores. The Mallard and Pekin are considered Starter Breeds.

They each come with possible hidden coats and traits. The hidden breed/traits may or may not be Non-Starter. When breeding new starters together, it is important to remember that the hidden breed/traits may or may not drop in the first Egg or even the last Egg.

As stated above, Non-Starter Breeds can come from breeding Starter Ducks. You can have a chance at one of these exciting Non-Starter Breeds by breeding any Duck with a Starter Duck or by breeding together two Starter Ducks. The Baikal Teal, Black Swedish, Cape Teal, and Cayuga are considered Non-Starter Breeds. All the Non-Starter Breeds CAN be passed on.

Amaretto celebrated Father’s Day on June 11, 2019, with Father’s Day Collectors Edition ducks! Hiding in these ducks was the Wrangler! The Wrangler Breed DOES have the ability to pass!

On September 1, 2019, to commemorate Amaretto’s 9th birthday, a specially designed birthday duck, Amaretto’s 9th Year- Hugin, was introduced. This beautiful duck appeared randomly in nests dropped on that day only! The Hugin Breed DOES have the ability to pass!

Such beautiful birds! Get to the Barnyard Bird store today and pick up some Starter Ducks. You never know what may come from them!

Until next time…HAPPY BREEDING!
