Many people suggested the name Poppy for the latest Salt River wild foal, because of the superbloom in the Tonto National Forest.
But we already have a Poppy (Posey is his mother and Shadowfax his father). He was also born during a huge poppy bloom, in March of 2014. Here is Poppy in the Poppies!

Poppies are actually very dangerous for horses when ingested. When you see their heads buried in them, they are picking out the grasses in between, and they are smart enough to spit out the poppies!
