That's a new one on me. I'm used to thinking of poppets as valves.

I like mushrooms in omelets and on pizza and steak.

There's several other meanings to poppet, but all seem to derive from a marionette.
However FWIW the Wikipedia entry for poppet valve begins
"A poppet valve (also called mushroom valve) is a valve typically used..."

The Bledowska Sands are the largest (in Central Europe) accumulation of loose sand away from any sea, deposited thousands of years ago by a melting glacier.[1]

During the Second World War, the area was used by the German Afrika Korps for training and testing equipment before deployment in Africa.

pelt -> colt ? (Google didn't help, and there's no Pelt on the roster of the Indianapolis Colts. Maybe another team?)
