Buest guess breed?

This is a mare I currently have in training for a boarder. We are unsure of her lineage but I have my suspicions. Would love others input on what they think she is. She is gray tobiano in color with blue eyes 15.3hh.

Have you given her a bath yet? It would be interesting to see if she has a hidden pattern.

Yes she has been at my barn for 3 years now and has gone from dappled to flea bit. She has the tobiano color pattern so yes she dose have both black and white skin.

Well, she is a horse that was born a Tobiano, but because she inherited the greying gene from one parent is now a white horse Yes, on horses that had colored hair, the skin there remains pigmented,in those former non white areas, and is visible when such a horse is washed
As many here know, my Appaloosa mare Charlie, were I to post a picture and ask to what breed of horse she was, no one, without knowing she was born chestnut, with blanket, high stockings and ablaze would, would recognize her as an Appaloosa, although, of course, those knowing the breed characteristics, would still see the mottled skin on her muzzle
Thus, the horse, depending on registry elligible for, would either be a pinto or a Paint, that unfortunately inherited the greying gene

I see what youbare trying to say, but she is still and overo (gave her a bath got a better look at her pattern). No she is not a "white horse". She is a Gray Overo i.e. a horse genetically patterned with a graying gene. White horses have pink skin gray horsed have black skin. Her Gentics mean her spots remain the same unlike the appalossa gene where the color of the skin can change with the coat change. I am aware of the genitcs but my initial question was about her breed not an argument about her color....

This is my gelding he is clearly a tobiano he is also registerd he is NOT however registered with either APHA or the color registration Pinto. He is eligible for Pinto registry because of his color. Just because they have spots dose not make them an APHA.

She's quite a lovely horse, isn't she? If she wasn't gray, and her tobiano coloring was visible, I would have probably guessed a Paint who is a mix of TB and Quarterhorse. Although I'd have to see a better pic of her rump especially from behind to say that. The gray makes her appear more like a southern European breed like an Andalusian than perhaps is warranted by her conformation, I don't know. Those aren't conformation shots.

@Mkat , your horse doesn't look like a QH at all . . . and maybe the OP's horse doesn't either. It's hard to tell from the photos.
