    Being SOO week I thought it would be a good time to throw up possible mascot options.

    Gus a few years ago now tried making the cattle dog our moniker but it just didn't go anywhere.

    Well I don't know if any of you guys know the history of the Australia (NSW) Waler horse and its great connection in our development as a nation and at times of war.

    This ABC Radio interview is fantastic and outlines the impressive forgotten history of this great horse that is on the brink of extinction now in Australia.

    Comments on what people think. I think it would be a great way to re-awaken Australian and maybe a way of helping save this great loyal and friendly species of horse from the brink. We really have dropped the ball on this one.

    Cheers

    I would get a lump of silver and paint it blue.

    Bob Marley's backing band really fell on hard times after he died.

    Nobody gets to pick their nickname.

    Cockroaches and Canetoads aren't pretty but they are unique and instantly recognisable.

    The Waler is a great story. I'd prefer Waler over Cattledogs.
