Poppy is sired by AQHA Superhorse, Popular Resortfigure, who made an incredible showing at the 2002 AQHA World Show (World Champion Jr. Dally Team Roping-Heading and Heeling, Reserve World Champion Jr. Tie-Down Roping and 6th place Jr. Working Cow Horse) and earned 261.5 AQHA Open Performance points. Poppy’s dam is Feature Me Foxy (SI-83, ROM in Racing and 1992 pre-Denver circuit calf roping champion).
Poppy entered the show ring in 2007 and placed 2nd in the tough CCQHA 3-year-old Reined Cow Horse. That same year, she made a good showing at the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity (Open/Limited Open). Poppy was then run successfully in barrel racing and pole bending. She was one of Long Pines’ most dependable ranch horses. She injured a knee which made it difficult for her to manage on the range so went to a new home in 2021.
