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. Starting in summer 2022, we will also offering the Danish import stallion Kian Klattrup for breeding to outside mares via live cover. Kian is co-owned by us and Jayne Olson.
Please check with us for availability for each stallion for 2024.

Helena must have taken a close look on our Norwegian Fjord Foal Calendar and found her name on it. Right at midnight on her due date her water broke and she delivered a beautiful brown dun filly by Gio.
This is the biggest foal she has produced so far, but also the longest she has ever carried. Last year she missed out on having a foal, due to her foaling late the previous year and we decided to bump her into the earlier season. As such, she was just delighted when her baby girl finally made her appearance.

We are also welcoming Dreamfield Wiley I Det Røde to our farm. Wiley is owned by Thane Piscoya and will be part of our breeding program for at least the next few years. Her pedigree is full with well known top notch individual: Her sire is DD Tjalve, Tsjalle's first red dun born in the US out of Lillian by Orka. Wiley's mom is sired by Flotren and out of our red dun are Zelda. It is no surprise that she fits in perfectly, not just on the paper, but also in respect to our herd and dynamics. Congratulations to Thane and we are very excited to have this girl here.
We are currently offering multiple Fjords for sale from weanlings to mature horses.
