drafts were bred for their level headed, calm mannerism- much like what you're seeing in your colt- so yes. Most drafts are much more easy going than your average arab, quarterhorse, or thorougbred. Don't mistake calmness for laziness though! =]
On occasion you will find a draft with quite a bit of energy though. I used to ride a 18 year old shire mare who thought she was Man O' War. If she wanted to go somewhere, she was going to get there. And fast. She was one of the first horses to bolt with me xD
So, like everyone says- it does mostly depend on the horse. Breeding does have something to do with it though. And we should be thankful! Can you imagine a 18hh shire galloping madly around with you, thinking he was a 15hh thoroughbred?
