New colt greets the dawn at Walligan on Anzac morning

AS THE mist cleared over their Walligan property on Anzac morning, Trish and Dave Cummings were introduced to the newest member of their family - a newborn colt who has since been named Kokoda.

Born some time before 5am, the burnt buckskin Australian quarter horse foal greeted a weary Trish as she peered out her window.

Hours earlier, Dave had gone outside to investigate what was causing the family's dogs to be making a ruckus.

It wasn't until the sun began to rise that they realised their horse Bindi was now a mum and her smoky grey son was finding his feet.
