Cob. She's not enough of anything to say a specific breed and she's coloured. A traditional coloured (albeit an unusual clour ;) ) cob. And quite a nice example of one.

There's usually some draft in the bigger cobs, but to be honest lots of cobs really don't have recognisable breeds in them as such.
I can't see anything Welsh about her. Her head looks a bit drafty or maybe ID ish. Cobs have been bred for generations within a type, so whatever breeds influenced that type may not neccessarily appear in recent generations. Most are at best mixtures - actual cross breds are not the norm, although there are cobs that are first crosses of one sort or another.
She's got a lovely expression. :) Would look good in harness.... ;)
