Breed guesses anyone?

So I've been feeling particularly lousy these last few days about how I missed the opportunity to buy this mare. She's been sold, is off living life with a very lucky family, but I'm just obsessed with her at the moment.. the super awesome people over in the Breeding Genetics/color forum helped me figure out what color she is, so I thought I might try posting here to get some breed guesses too!

She came from a kill lot auction in the Midwestern US, Colorado; Paints, Quarter Horses, Appendixes, Thoroughbreds, and Appaloosas are the most prominent breeds in these parts, but I have seen a flux in gaited horses lately. I wish I had more photos, but I don't. I hope these will work for you.

I almost wonder if she's a Clydesdale/TB cross.

I'm not sure but doesn't particularly strike me as TB- how tall is she?

She was between 14.3 and 15.0 hands last she was measured at two-three years of age. I can't tell you her current height though, since she's moved barns.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

I definitely do not see full TB in this horse, but you'd think she would be taller if she had draft influence. She does have that 'front and top heavy' appearance of them though...hmmmm.

Maybe a TB x a heavier pony breed? She's awfully cute! Especially in the second photo.

She's probably the cutest horse I've ever come across, but I'm biased. ;)

Is there any clear indication of her maybe being a QH? I'll look in all my archives for more photos if it'll help, but I'm almost certain that I don't have any more photos.
