Dungård is a Norwegian Fjord Horse breeding and training farm, owned by Dan Watanabe & Denise Vogel. It is currently located in Valley, Washington. Dungård is dedicated to excellence in Norwegian Fjordhorses that exemplify the breed's character and convey their Power, Elegance and irresistible Charm!
We have a small breeding program which represents top quality blood-lines from North America and Europe and are working to establish national and international partnerships that promote quality, genetic diversity and, by extension, long term sustainability in the breed. From the very beginning we have chosen to focus on versatile, highly capable Fjords and innovative training methods.
Dungård's stallions are top quality, yet different from each other and very complementary.
We are standing at stud our gorgeous grey dun German import stallion, Tsjalle, and our magnificent white dun stallion OFI Siljar. Our junior stallion Prince Maximus Sur Mer successfully started his first breeding season in 2019.
For 2020 Maximus will be available for outside mares March-April in WA and May-September in Capac, MI.
Tsjalle and Siljar will be standing for breeding at our farm in Valley, WA from April forward and are available via live cover and fresh- chilled, shipped semen.
Check back regularly for exciting developments!
Kjella made us wait two extra weeks for our first 2020 foal! DD Kermit is a super cute colt by Tsjalle and out of Kjella (Silver Flyer/Tico). He was born with a huge appetite and the birth has been uncomplicated and fast. Both Kjella and Kermit are doing well. Kjella is very easy and relaxed as a first time mother and doesn't seem to be bothered that Kermit is very active, curious and already loves to use those legs.
Congratulations to Kermit's owner Natalie Mercer to this adorable colt!
Our first two mares got confirmed in foal! Greta is bred to Maximus for a winter 2020/2021 foal and Faksi is bred to Tsjalle for an early 2021 foal! We are super excited about these crosses!
Prince Maximus Sur Mer (Bakkens Marius x Bluebird Lane Oriole by Mogly) will be heading to his new home in Capac, MI with Dun In Farm and Pat & Warren Hofert. He will be available for outside mares via live cover and shipped semen in the midwest starting this breeding season.
We wish both, Maximus and Hoferts, all our best and are excited for the arrival of our 2020 Maximus foals.
