I have 29 Alis, 8 are still babies. All crafted in the Love Shack, only from parts no gems used. Latest was a couple of weeks ago and I have 2 horns that have dropped since. I send out adventures constantly from both castle and barracks. I don't keep track but I think I've had parts drop from all the original adventures, not the fairy, troll or fur burrow. I started with the separate Valentine Edition of Castle Story. I'm pretty sure that was the only parallel version. Dragon Story has had several Halloween and a beach theme one. Anyways that version had different colors in the surrounding vegetation, all shades of pink and purple. Trees and rocks dropped regular and pink wood and stone. Only beast at that time was the Lovecupine. That was 4 years ago and most details are fuzzy but at some time I did download the regular version and played both for a while but preferred the colors of the Valentine. At some point during the summer that version was discontinued and I had to play just the regular one. There were a number of crafting tasks that were then incorporated into the Love Shack. I can change regular wood and stone to pink ones and use them to craft the Love fountain, pink trimmed walls and towers, pink pathways and rainbows, make Valentine flowers and trees using the entwined seedlings that still drop from the Love adventure and some pink flowers. And if I wanted to, I can still purchase the pink animals with gems. They drop chocolate eggs, and other stuff used to craft candy boxes which are used to craft box item, forget the name, that is needed for the Love adventure. Sheep drops a red ribbon.
If you wish to come visit, I have a corner devoted to the Love Shack and things pink. I purchased 5 pink chickens with coins when they were available. All the other love animals were drops from the Love adventure: 4 cows, 2 still calves; 4 chickens; 2 pig, 1 still piglet; and 2 sheep, 1 still lamb. I've put the Wedding stuff there as well. The carriage is pulled by the pink Alis followed by the single Wedding Ali, white bush in remberance of the one rustled in the middle of the night. The chapel and geese have been added recently. Love animals recently crafted do not have the special drops so the cow, 2 pigs and 2 sheep are in the pasture with the other farm animals.
As much as people would like, I don't think there is much chance S8 would bring it back. There is just too much that it can do.
