Clouds Hill was foaled in 1969.He is a Thoroughbred. He is the sire of Starlit Hills Sundown, who is the sire of the famous High Fashion who has had 3 foals at my farm. High Fashion "Ginger" is a big bodied medium but bred to my Sugarbrook Blue Pacific (a 13.2 almost) who can throw size, did not throw much size with her three foals born here. Ginger is liver chestnut with lost of white just like her sire.
Thanks for all of the PM's from people regarding Clouds Hill. In case anyone else is hunting for information on him in the future, I'm going to post the a very nice write-up that was given to me:
Clouds Hill was a chestnut Thoroughbred stallion, fairly small - under 16.0. He was by Mighty Monarch (who carried some size) out of a *Beau Chef mare named Black Dusk. He stood for years at Woodlands ponies. (Woodlands) searched for a number of years for the "right" Thoroughbred stallion and finally acquired Cloud's Hill. They retained a lot of his daughters which they then bred to their sons of Cymraeg Rain Beau and Hidden Creek's Rain Fox, both out of one of her best mares by Cloud's Hill, Woodlands Velvet Cloud.
Cloud's Hill did not stand to many (if any) outside mares while at Woodlands. The ponies by him were usually great jumpers and of good size. A few surprised and remained mediums. While his get did not always have the "pony head" that is desired today, they were athletic, hardy, and useful ponies. Many of the ponies Woodlands bred were 3/4 to 7/8 Thoroughbred.
Sue Bolling Meredith (Woodland's founder) bought him in the early 1970's and used him exclusively with her mares. Woodland's has never bred their stallions to outside mares (it was just something Sue wasn't interested in doing).
Sue and my employer during my teenage years, Mary Barnes, were good buddies, and Mary sent a couple of her mares down to Sue's to be bred, but they had to be field bred, which a lot of folks didn't want to do. Basically, we took the mares down there for the summer. Mary got two foals out of that, one for Grace Oeters, Just a Nip, and Pine's Kahlua, both in 1982. Not sure what happened to Kahlua, but "Roly" is with me today, by chance. Both were by Prince of Princes.
Just saying that Sue did take outside mares. Maybe just for her close friends, but I wonder if she didn't do more.
