I could guess that he could be Percheron/TB cross. His head kinda reminds me of my 16'3hh KMH's head, who is definitely a throwback to his TWH genetics. TWH's have Percheron in their past, and Percherons have the same kind of head that I see on your guy.
WhatEVER he is, it sure looks like you own a gem!

I'm in the Percheron/TB camp, too.

He's so gorgeous, I'm drooling over here! I really want him :)

Haha, I totally recognize the facility in your pics, Rocky is one of my favorites!

Your guy is gorgeous, he actually looks VERY similar in both build and color/markings to a friend's horse who also events around here, she has Shire/TB mare. So that would be my guess. She'll be at most of the events, she rides Prelim and the horse's name is Wellington Wren if you want to keep an eye out. Not sure where she got her mare from, can't remember offhand, but to me they do look quite similar! There's actually a few pics of the mare up on the Alberta Horse Trials website home page, on the slide show on the top right, she's the big mealy bay with a stripe down her face if you want to check it out.

Oops, well, at any rate, at least it isn't some huge-arse shanked monster bit. :)

I am no genius at horse breeds, but I really don't think he's an appendix. No QH is that big-boned, and, though he could have gotten the height from the TB side, I'm just not seeing it. Am I missing something?

My first thought was Irish (Draught not Sport Horse) as well, but I can see where he would need to be a bit more "refined" looking. He does have a drafty Shire-like eye.

In any case, I agree with everyone else. He is stunning, and I just love the look of him regardless of his breed.
