National Flag of Canada Day

National Flag of Canada Day, commonly shortened to Flag Day, is observed annually on February 15th to commemorate the inauguration of the flag of Canada on this day in 1965. 

At the stroke of noon on February 15th 1965, Canada’s red and white maple leaf flag was raised for the very first time on Parliament Hill. On the same day in 1996, National Flag of Canada Day was declared.

Even though Canada became nation in 1867, an earlier flag, the “Pearson’s Pennant”, did not meet with universal approval. A new consensus, based on the maple leaf and national colour, resulted in the “Maple Leaf Flag”, which was adopted by Parliament in 1965. 

Flags of the World – Canada were released January 1 -January 31 2016

Beginning March 1, 2015 the first of the new Flags Of the World Eyes were born onto the grid.

The Flags Of the World Eyes are one set of many exciting possible Non-Starter eyes that can come from breeding any coat.

You can have a chance at one of these exciting Non-Starter eyes as they are randomly dropped into bundles at the time the bundle drops.

These eyes CAN be passed on.

Strawberries and Candy!

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, let’s take a look at two of the best Valentine’s Ponie Pals ever created. Alright I am a little bias about these but I love these two Ponies.

Which ones am I talking about. The 2019 Valentines Day Strawberry Cream and Rainbow Candy Ponie Pals from 2019.

Amaretto celebrated Valentines Day on Feb 2nd 2019 and released Valentines Edition animals that you could purchase until Feb 15th 2019. There was the a chance that you could get a new trait from any breeding of these 2019 Valentines Day Edition Ponie Pals.

2019 Valentines Day Rainbow Candy

And what did these amazing Ponies drop, of course the eyes were able to be passed but they also gave two new amazing horns:

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!!


Hello everyone! I hope your weekend is off to an awesome start and you are staying warm or cool where you are!

The spotlight today is shining on the awesome Albino eyes for our Ponie Pals!

Amaretto Albinos have become somewhat famous in the Amaretto Community. To have such a prized horse born is very exciting. Plus they come with a very special eye that will be sought after by many.

The Albinos come randomly from full siblings. Full siblings are siblings that come from the exact same mother and father. Siblings do not have to have the same traits they only need to be full sibling.

Albinos come with very special Albino Eyes that can be passed on to their offspring.

The ability to get an Albino Ponie was released with the 2.0 update on On May 25, 2020. Albino Eyes DO have the ability to pass!

So what are you waiting for? Let’s get started breeding our Ponie sibs to get a Ponie Albino and one of these awesome eyes!

Till next time this is Snookie hoping you have a great weekend and an amazing week ahead!


2015 Valentine Chickens

On February 9, 2015 Amaretto released the Valentines Day Collectors Edition Barnyard Birds. These Collectors Edition Valentine Barnyard Birds were sold at all Amaretto Store Locations. These were sold between February 9, 2015 and February 16, 2015 only!

The coats on these Collectors Edition Barnyard Birds do NOT pass.

The eyes on these Collectors Edition Barnyard Birds Do have the ability to pass.

The Valentines Day 2015 Collectors Edition Barnyard Birds did have the ability to pass the eyes as well as some hidden surprises. These Valentines Collectors Edition Barnyard Birds had to be bred to each other to have a chance at getting the eyes as well as the hidden surprises.

These 2015 Valentines Day Collectors Edition were hiding the shades Sunshine and Love.

If you didn’t get these adorable Collectors Edition birds you can still get the sunshine and love shades, as they were passable once they showed in the eggs from them. The pastel colors make me think of peeps. Bok Bok!

Extraterrestrial Culture Day – February 8, 2022

Extraterrestrial Culture Day is celebrated on the second Tuesday of February and takes place on February 8 this year. The day exists to “celebrate and honor all past, present, and future extraterrestrial visitors in ways to enhance relationships among all citizens of the cosmos, known and unknown,” according to the bill that introduced the day. On March 21, 2003, New Mexico’s general assembly passed the House Memorial 44 along with the establishment of the holiday. Although Extraterrestrial Culture Day specifically originated in New Mexico, today is celebrated in places far from its borders. Any person interested in the mysteriousness of the universe and alien life may be seen celebrating the day.


We should be thanking State Representative Daniel Foley of Roswell for introducing the day with House Bill 766. The bill designated the day to be celebrated every second Thursday of February, but when the memorial was passed, the holiday was changed to every second Tuesday of February instead. According to the memorial, the day was created to honor extraterrestrials who have contributed to the worldwide recognition of New Mexico through their many and ongoing visitations, sightings, and unexplained mysteries.

Extraterrestrial life has also been attributed to technological developments, experiments, as well as explorations. The world of Hollywood has also been influenced by alien life, generating storylines that typically portray the accomplishments of alien beings throughout the universe. Sounds bizarre, right? The reason why Foley decided to introduce the day can be traced back to 1947, to a spot about 75 miles from Roswell. At this spot, rancher Mac Brazel found dirt in his sheep pasture.

He called up the local sheriff after finding metal sticks that were taped together, heavy paper-like material that seemed glossy, and bits of foil and plastic reflectors. Roswell Army Force Base showed up at the scene with armored trucks to take away the debris following a call from the sheriff.

On July 8, 1947, the Roswell Daily Record printed a front-page story titled “RAAF Captures Flying Saucer On Ranch in Roswell Region.” The next day, RAAF made a statement that a weather balloon had been found instead of a flying saucer that everyone claims it to be. However, witnesses of the debris think otherwise. They believe that the debris looked nothing like a weather balloon, but more of an alien-like flying saucer

Bandanas for your Ponie Pals

On May 25, 2020 Amaretto released Version 2.0, hidden in the 2.0 update was the Bandana trait! Initially there were four bandanas released for the Ponie Pals.

On September 22, 2020 until until October 5, 2020. Amaretto released Limited Edition Wasteland Ponies hidden in these Ponies were the Apocalyptic Bandana!

And then at Summer Fest 2021 a brand new Ponie Pal Bandana Hotrod was sold.

So why not add a little flair to your Ponie Pal breeding and add a Bandana today.

Amaretto Breedables offers a reward system called Horse Haven. When you send your Horse to Horse Haven you will receive a number of points based on the number of traits and age for a particular Horse. Once you have accumulated enough points, you can use these points to purchase an array of items from the Horse Haven Vendor such as Pet Food, Healing Kits and our unique Horse Haven Horses. Haven horses can be gotten for 250,000 haven points.
On Saturday September 27, 2014 Amaretto added Haven Horse – Zebracorn to the Horse Haven vendor! They come in random gender and coat, and each has their own special eye, the Whimsical Eye.

The Zebracorn Haven Horse also gave some special surprises. If you breed the Zebracorn with any other horned horse (the horn must be shown in the stats) you can have a chance at one of the Zebracorn’s horns passing.

The Zebracorns also have the ability to pass 4 different hidden wings, and the horns they were showing

  • Brown/Teal
  • Brown/Orange
  • Gold/Yellow
  • Silver/Purple

Zebracorn coats DO NOT have the ability to pass, but the Whimsical eyes DO have the ability to pass. And remember, when you breed a Haven Horse (whether it is with another Haven Horse or any other horse) you DO have an increased chance at receiving a random Charmed Horse. The non-Charmed offspring of a Haven Horse do NOT have an increased chance of producing a Charmed Horse. Happy Breeding!

IWTB Featuring Luna Barak

Hi everyone hope you are all having an awesome Tuesday! This week I had the pleasure of interviewing one of our community members Luna Barak

Please tell the community a little about yourself. Where you are from and what brought you to Second Life?

I am from Italy (this is why I ask you pardon for any grammar error you will find next!) and I live in a region called Tuscany, in which the most famous town is Florence.
I landed in Second Life almost 14 years ago and what brought me here was curiosity of course, what still keep me here is instead the fact I have fun in creating stuf.

Which Amaretto Breedables do you own?
I actually breed Horses, dragons and ducks.

What is your favorite Amaretto Breedable?
I will tell you, but I guess many Amaretto breeders already know, that my obsession are horses and to be more precise.. shetlands!
Past min projects have been the Gold Nugget Shetland and the Cupid Shetland

What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto Breedables?

My projects always involve shetlands, at the moment I am working on these two:

1 – Embers Shetlands
Coat: Mandarin Crazed Shetland
Eye: Flame
Mane: Long/UprightLong
Tail: Long
Hair & Coat: Gleam High
Coat: blush
Ear Tip Red
Ear Size Lanky
Hoof Pomegranate
Wing Style: Pegasus
Wing Color: Blazing
Horn Style: Coveted Circlet
Horn Color: Fire
Wild Hair: Chili Mango Crazed Coat Roan
Beard: Goldenrod
(I just added the beard as it matches wonderfully! )

2 – Iron Steel Shetlands
Coat: Silver Classic Shetland
Eye: Alloy
Mane: Long
Tail: Long
Coat Luster High
Hair Luster High
Coat Opal
Hair Opal
Horn Style: Coveted Circlet
Horn Color: Metal

    I am evaluating adding: Wing Color: Black Tourmaline        

What is your craziest Amaretto story?

Not the craziest maybe but happiest have been when I won the designing contest over a new LE, it came totally unexpected as I knew the shetlands – which was the coat over I have built my design – are not the most popular coat among Amaretto breeders, but I was wrong.
The Faun shetland was most voted and then the Amaretto team created over that basis two beautiful new coats the Faun Pearl and the Faun Umber.

What are some other things that you enjoy doing in Second Life when you’re not taking care of your breedables?

My main activity is creating fantasy and historical items (hair, buildings, garden decorations and plants, etc.) , my business is known under the name of Fantavatar & Moonstruck and it was established on 2007.
This interest is born when I was roleplaying in a fantasy themed sim called Karamoon, from that time I started creating everything I needed or I figured would have enriched the play.
I still have fun creating by taking inspiration from fantasy tales or history, though real life often take power on my time and I stop producing new things for quite long periods now.
What I never miss anyway is the annual Fantasy Fair – which take place around March/April – where all the creators gathers with their most awesome design in behalf of the Relay For Life Cancer Society.
I partecipate there as sim builder – in partnership with Alrunia Ahn a known fantasy creator – and as a merchant.

Thank you Luna for taking the time to share your story and your love of Amaretto!

Until next time Happy Breeding!
