Ah! Draft horses, yes! (Hiya, olls.)

Good heavens: the draft horses were drawing a dray of hops to make draft, which their owners could drink whilst playing Draughts and feeling a draft coming in the window. crazy

Don't forget the horsies....

Nor the soldiers. "Jeremy escaped from being drafted by playing the lunatic. Which wasn't much of an effort."

Not bad for a first draft of a list of different meanings.

this too shall pass
but before we start singing waught like waft, to rhyme with draft, it should be noted that the IPA is given as /wɑxt/ , where x is ch as in Scots loch (also, the verb waught, to drink or quaff in large draughts, predates our noun by a couple hundred years.)
