The only Toulouse I ever knew was on Hampstead Heath in

The famed naturalist/author John Hillaby - who camped on the
Heath for his second honeymoon when he was about 70 -
referred to the Toulouse enclosure, which was next to a
Gents and Ladies. 

Anyhow, what is a Toulouse Goose ? I guess a domesticated
form of Anser anser - the Greylag Goose - possibly bred to
provide Pate de fois gras.
