Looks like she's going to take after the paint side, Oldhorselady. My Percheron/paint is a coming 3yo (in May) whose sire was a 15.1hh APHA and his dam was a 17hh Percheron. Aires is already 16hh at the withers and around 16.2hh at the butt.
If I were you, I'd string test her. I believe if you measure from the front of her fetlock to her knee, the number you get in inches is the number of hands they'll end up (so if she measures 15", she'll be 15hh). When I did this on Aires, it showed he'd be right around 17-17.1hh. Also, I can't remember what thread it was in, but someone posted a table about how much of their mature height a horse has at any given age. I believe at 3-years-old, they have something like 98% of their adult height.
Do not tell me I can't...because I will show
you that I can.
