^ THANK YOU!! I was about to post the same thing.
It all depends on who the parents are and what their talent/conformation is like. If the parents have poor conformation, yeah, the baby is going to have poor conformation. But it's like that in ANY breed. You can't just generalize draft crosses like that.
I have found that it also depends on the specific percentage of draft. Many half crosses are heavier, and have a worse reputation because of it. But that doesn't mean they can't go above Training! This is why many people are driven away from draft crosses, because they are grouped together as untalented and ugly. Not true of all of them!
3/4 TB 1/4 Draft is my favorite cross. It has the best of both worlds. Stamina of the TB, heart of the TB, and the kind mind and sturdiness of the draft.
