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, our magnificent white dun stallion OFI Siljar and our newly imported glorious red dun stallion Gio. Our junior stallion Prince Maximus Sur Mer successfully started his first breeding season in 2019 at Dungård and is breeding with Dun In Farm (DIF) in Capac, Michigan.
We are proud to be the North American agent for frozen semen from Stal Haas in the Netherlands and to be able to offer a selected number of their stallions via frozen semen.
For 2021 we are standing Gio and Siljar for live cover and shipped fresh-chilled semen. Additionally we are offering frozen semen on Gio and his half brother Jelte (owned by Stal Haas).
Check back regularly for exciting developments!
Mr. Handsome aka Gio has his first couple mares confirmed in foal for 2022. Our two red dun mares Lillian by Orka and Havenwood's Jorun by Anvil's Lyst both confirmed in foal for early March 2022 deliveries. It will be a head to head who will be first since both mares were in heat at the same time! We are very excited to see Gio's first foals in North America!
and Dungård. Vivian is named in honor of Vikkelsoe's Kunst breeder Vivian Vikkelsoe Skott. Vivian will be retained as a future broodmare for both programs!
Our third foal in 2021 has arrived, a brown dun colt by Tsjalle and out of Kjella (Silver Flyer/Tico). DD Trajan is super personable, sweet and very balanced in his body. He loves people and jumping and so he was meant to be going to a wonderful family with kids with ambitions to get back into showing.
Congratulations to Brigitte Schovanec and family to their newest addition!
We are very excited to represent Stal Hass Norwegian Fjord Horse stallions here in the US and distribute frozen semen of their lovely stallions.
Starting in 2021 we are pleased to offer frozen semen on Jelte (Hermansen x Viola by Briggen). In 2022 it is planned that we will add the grey Jelte son Olaf to our frozen semen assortment.
We want to thank Fenny Hass for her trust in us and look forward to a mutually beneficial partnership!
