The town of Goondiwindi has been in the news of late, for the wrong reasons. Floods you know. Bad. For those unfamiliar with the pronunciation, like me, it is Gundiwindi.
I have heard of a horse known as the Goondiwindi Grey. I am guessing it is music related and something my step mother liked. Instead of calling her to find out and bothering her when her nearby town of Rochester is also flooded, the internet tells me it is Tex Morton song about the race horse Gunsynd. I have heard of him/her, the horse, but not for years. R is busy watching tv, so I will try to remember to listen to the song on Youtube later.
Now some seem to be saying Carbine is not an Australian horse, and they have plenty of documentation to back up their assertions. along with its head. I am sure it is an Australian horse in spirit. They'd better not be claiming Gunsynd. If I see a comment begin with, Well actually Andrew... I will cry.
