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 currently 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. Our 2020 white dun colt, DD Malibu, will start breeding in 2022 with Kat Barrett in Oregon and will later be standing a breeding season at Dungård as well. DD Totilas, co-owned with Aurora Skurtun, will be standing for breeding in California.
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).

We are considering finding a new home for our breeding stallion OFI Siljar (Skogheims Viljar x OH Sadie by MVF Erlend). He is a 2013 white dun (grey recessive), 14.2hh with 9” cannon bone. We have been very pleased with the quality of offspring Siljar produced for us and the amazing temperaments he put on our three lovely fillies that we are raising. Siljar excels in correct conformation, bone and substance and breed character.
Siljar is a very kind and caring soul, who has been very stressed over the past month with having another stallion on our property. We are looking for a new home where Siljar can continue to contribute his quality as a breeding stallion, getting worked and cared for without the distraction and stress from having other stallions around. While we love him and would love nothing more than for him to stay with us, we feel it is not fair to him. He has, at this point, limited use for our program as we 6/17 of our mares are white duns that he can’t breed because of his color and one mare that he is too related to. We are looking for the RIGHT place for him, not for a quick sale. Half ownership, filly back deal or available as a breeding package with his favorite mare are all possible.
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!
