Confident, curious and personable are the words describing our first 2020 foal by Tsjalle and out of Kjella the best! Kermit was born with a huge appetite for milk, but also hungry for life. He is enjoying every minute and everyone who is visiting him. Kermit is super independent and luckily Kjella, as a first time mother, is okay with that. His personality is all daddy, with just a super cute and adorable head and and well put together body.
Even though the birth was uncomplicated, Magnus had a little rough start in life. His dam Ani is known for dropping her foals about 2 weeks before due, but this one she cooked extra long. Therefore, Magnus is the biggest foal we EVER had. Due to his size his legs were contracted in the front which caused him to have a difficult time nursing and standing on his own for a very long period of time. We took him to WSU for treatment and he is on an excellent path of improvement. Magnus means "power house" and suits our first Maximus foal in every way!
Our first 2020 filly is just absolutely perfect in every way and we LOVE the cross between Megan and Tsjalle! Tweety is elegant, refined, leggy and suited with an awesome neck and very good conformation through the body. Even though we would have loved to keep her for our own program, Tweety is going to have a very bright future as a broodmare and dressage Fjord with her owner Natalie Mercer. Congratulations on this stunning filly!
Valia is a grey dun filly by Smedsmo Graen and out of the Danish import mare Vikkelsoe's Kunst by Max. Vikke is the only Max daughter in North America and we are over the moon excited to now have these genetics in our breeding program. A HUGE thank you to Wendy Bauwens from Sunnyside Farm, who owns Vikke, for making this possible!
Taavi is a super adorable colt by Tsjalle out of our Orka daughter Lillian. He has a very cute refined head and is build very balanced through his body. Taavi has a willing easy going disposition, just like his parents and brother Tjalve!
Taro was the first foal born at Dungård this year and is Tsjalle's first foal in North America! He is super athletic, fun and extremely functional. Taro is named after his grandfather (Tsjalle's sire) and has the Japanese meaning "first son born" and indicates the following traits... "strong, heroic, masculine, abundance, prolific, melodious, stand up, upright, watchtower". We thought his name is suites him in every way.
The Easter Bunny brought us this stunning grey dun colt out of our Mogly daughter Megan! Tajo has not just an impressive pedigree (Tsjalle/Mogly/Prydarson), but beautiful conformation and a very sweet disposition. He is Megan's first foal and we are very impressed with the quality she produced and also how easy, calm and confident she was as a first time mother!
Jorina is a breathtaking white dun filly out of our red dun mare Jorun and by Siljar. We just love how this cross worked! She is leggy, has good bone but is still refined and has a beautiful eye. Jorina has shown from the first minute that she has a HUGE personality and we are thrilled to raise this beauty and see how she matures!
Born on May Day, Flora is named after the Roman goddess of flowers and spring. This leggy filly is by Thorsten (Torsetblakken x Thilde by Plutonikk) and out of LVG Faski (Prydarson x Skjenna Gard Fiorgyn by Felix). We are very happy to now have something from Thilde back in the program, who we lost to a strangulating lipoma in November. Welcome Flora, our little flower!
Silvianna is just the filly we were hoping to get! She has a beautiful, refined head, is big and leggy and has a great disposition. Silvianna likes to move (unlike her mom), but is also calm, gentle, friendly and really likes people. We just love how this cross worked! Silvianna will take over her mom's place in the breeding program and we are excited to see how our first filly by Tsjalle will mature.
This guy has it all! Tjalve is super functional RED DUN colt out of our Orka daughter, Lillian, and by Tsjalle. He is beautifully put together and also has a very gentle and friendly mind.
Our first foal born at the new farm in Valley, meet DD Tjorn. Mr. Presence is Lilly's 13th foal and again beautifully put together. Tjorn is on his way to be big with tons of bone and muscle.
