Draught-horses have no blankees

As I wander the  back-roads of King at this time year, I notice that the pasturing thoroughbred horses are all wearing horse blankets, while the draught-horses never have a blanket on them.   Are the draught-horses really that much tougher and more durable than their racing cousins? Or do they just not make over-sized blankets for the big horses?   As a non-horse person, I'd be interested in hearing from someone who has an explanation for this.   Please comment if you wish.   The gang above were hanging out a few kilometres south-west of Schomberg.
