Farewell to a Clarence legend

IT IS with a heavy heart that The Daily Examiner announces the passing of the Brumby of Brooms Head this morning.

Surrounded by a handful of those closest to him, one of his biggest supporters Steve Otton said he was humanely laid to rest in one of his favourite places in Brooms Head where his spirit will remain forever.

Aged in his early 20s the horse captured hearts and the minds of the people of the Clarence Valley and anyone who learned his story of survival and freedom.

People are invited to pay their respects at his resting place on the grounds of the Brooms Head Bowls Club.

The Daily Examiner will publish a special tribute to Brumby on Thursday.
