New rescue mare, interested in critiquing?

Here's my new rescue mare that many of you have followed along her progress with her feet. She's 11 and was a therapeutic riding horse and was previously used for gymkhanas and trail riding. (Supposedly)
For those that don't know, what breed do you think she is? I'm interested to hear opinions. (For those that know her breed keep it a secret for a bit ;) )
Critique away!! I see a few conformation flaws but I'm just going to let everyone comment.

She's gorgeous! As for her conformation, what stands out to me is she's standing under herself and looks to be slightly downhill. She has a pretty face though, and oh man that apple butt <3 And I'm probably way off, but I'll take a stab at her breed and say Haflinger? Anyways, I think this mare is very cute, I love how stout she is.

SeaBreezy said what I was going to with confirmation. I'll add a little cow hocked, but hello draft horse.

Super cute and glad she has a good home!

It took forever for the pictures to show up for me but they eventually did.

You know, she looks haflinger, but she also looks fairly tall (based on the height of the stall window on the stall door behind her and on the position of the cross ties). So, I'm going to be the odd duck out and say Belgian cross, most likely with QH.

I don't think she's as downhill as she appears. She appears to be standing at a slight angle. She's got fairly typical draft hind legs that are not horribly cow hocked.

I like her a lot.
