This egg is heavy and very warm.
It's big, it's klutzy, it's adorable. It likes chin scratches.
As it's grown its klutziness has given way to the grace of a yearling. It bounds around, enjoying its games of tag with both you and other yearlings. It's fledged as well but you can't fathom how such small wings could be useful.
Getting lost in a forest isn't fun any time of year, but if one happens to be lost in a snowbound forest they are more likely to meet a draught dragon. Wild draughts are typically shy but unless they sense a threat or are startled, they will not run when approached. These powerful dragons are actually best known for their protective natures, being known to lead lost travellers back to familiar trails and to lay next to them to keep them from freezing to death on cold nights. Their wings, useless for flight, provide some measure of shielding against wind and driving snow, things that typically don't bother adults but are dangerous to people and young draughts alike. In particularly cold times, they gather together with their bands and huddle the young in the middle to be warmed by residual body heat from the adults. These wild draughts are far less magically skilled than their exceedingly rare white counterparts, only being able to produce very small fireballs for brief periods.
Pure white hides and skill with fire magic were traits all but bred out during the attempt to breed a warm-temperature draught - white color because it wouldn't be practical in jungles and fire magic because many feared the animal accidentally lighting stuff on fire. Among the forest draught of today, white hides and intact fire magic are inextricably linked. White draughts are able to create brilliant, warm fireballs. Those stuck travelling through a forest at night may find themselves with a fireball friend as the dragon itself trails behind as if it were keeping an eye out for the traveller's safety.
