Protopopov (Poppy), the Pet of the Day
Name: Protopopov (Poppy)
Age: Eleven years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Russian Arabian
Home: Delaware, USA
   Protopopov is a Russian Arabian, whom we call Poppy for short. Poppy is a sassy horse who is very intelligent. He loves our six-year-old daughter, Savannah. Whenever she asks him if he loves her, he shakes his head yes. Poppy was being trained for dressage but he preferred to just be someone's pet. He is a fantastic creature who is smart enough to know his rider's ability (or lack thereof). He also knows when people are talking about him. He is very human oriented. He will zip and unzip your jacket. He will take a hat off of your head. He is the head of his "herd," which consists of a really old horse and a cute pot-bellied pig. We all love Poppy and hope you have enjoyed meeting him.
