    Default Acros 3 offspring Anyone have one?

    I am considering him for my event mare. I have had the pleasure of working with 4 of his offspring. All pretty similar, but 3 of the 4 were directly related.

    Anyone have any personal opinions or have seen Acros 3 offspring out of TB mares?

    ETA
    here are some links in case no one has any idea who is he.

    I have a 2006 offspring. Audiheir 3 currently moving up to the 1.15 should end up being a 1.30+ horse. He is out of a cantini mare bred by carbondale farms. Rudy Leone also has several of Acros' offspring on his website.

    We've never bred to him, but like his video! He has several of the WB lines we like for eventing. I think, depending on the mare, he would be a very nice cross for eventing bred to a smaller mare who was TB or predominantly TB. Good luck!!!

    A friend bred a race-bred AQHA mare to him. I never saw the mare but, based on another related horse that I did see, I would say the foal was a definite improvement as a sport horse. She was good-minded, tolerant, and pleasant to work around. She grew relatively quickly (as in, we were afraid she'd be too big for her petite owner) but then leveled out. The owner took her home when she was 3-4 as her daughter was getting married and she wanted to save some money so I don't know how she came out once older.

    I worked at Leone for a while which is one of the reasons I am interested in him. I have TB mare that I am planning on breeding in a few years and since she is older I need to go fresh.

    Anyone have any eventing offspring by him?

    If you have a facebook look up carbondale farms, he has an eventing offspring Anjelito and lots of pictures and also one named Atticus.

    late to the thread but my daughter has an Acros baby. Her mother is Kimberly who is a KWPN out of Goodwill/Hester. She is an April 2008 baby so five and a half now.

    She will probably turn out as a 1.30+ horse. She is 16.3 and pretty amateur friendly.

    My daughter just started showing her this summer:
