Siljar is our magnificent white dun stallion, who Dan bred and we kept for our program. He epitomizes the breed like no one else with his
When Siljar was born, you could see he was going to be something special. Dan found Siljar's sire, Skogheims Viljar, through pedigree research in the Norwegian database and imported him in 2010 has a yearling.
Viljar represents some of the best blood-lines and breeding in Norway and Siljar's dam, OH Sadie, represents some of the best in North America! She received an NFHR Evaluation score of 85.25 for conformation and movement, making her the fourth highest evaluated mare in the registry, and competed to 2nd level in dressage with trainer Anne Lewis.
Siljar combines the best out of both parents. He is not just a handsome looking guy, he is an extremely sweet and caring stallion with a lovely, easy going temperament which he passes on to his foals. His breed character and conformation are exceptional. With his height of 14.2hh and his cannon bone measurement of 9.05", he offers excellent bone and muscle structure while still being leggy, uphill and compact.
We have been lucky to not just have Siljar as an individual at our farm, but to be raising four lovely daughters of his. All are sweet as can be and are very people oriented. In 2022 we welcomed our first Siljar granddaughter, DD Grå Perle by Tsjalle, who just exceeded our expectations and confirmed our vison combining these lines.
In addition to the qualities that he passes on, as a white dun, Siljar has a 50% chance of throwing his creme gene to every foal. On top of that, Siljar is grey recessive and has been very consistent in passing this gene to his foals. Siljar has been leased to Dun In Farm in Capac, Michigan for 2019 and produced three lovely foals in the mid west. Since we have limited breeding use for Siljar at the moment, we are open to leasing him for breeding to the right situation or even permanently finding him a place where he can spread his qualities and genetics.
For anyone looking to breed to him, Siljar's stud fee is $800 which includes a 50% non-refundable booking deposit. He is currently only available via live cover. Mare care is $13/night.
