Yeah... We've raised 2 fillies in the past. One, my cousins, was always a sort of timid but calm horse. She never really blew up over nothing... In fact, the only reason she went nuts was because my cousin kept her at these peoples house for them to train her and she was abused and began fighting them because she didn't want to be hurt. This horses dam was a timid and calm horse, though, and so was her sire.
The other filly is my uncles. She was the sweetest thing as a baby, but really nosy... Now she's just turned 2 and she's a major brat and wants to kick, buck, bite, strike, and rear... It's really annoying and dangerous since my uncles 12 year old granddaughter is the one training her and the filly has already broke her finger and tried to throw her. Whitch, this filly's dam was a real brat, too... Her sire, however, was moderately calm but got really unruly at times.
It just depends on the horse. And the genetics.
