Do you think she's really pure Arabian?

This is kinda silly but I was wondering if you guys think Lacey is really pure arab. She seems pretty stocky to me to be pure Arabian, but she has the right attitude, and intelligence for an Arabian. She also has moments where she really looks like one... What do you think?
I have no information about her parents, just the assurance of the her breeder, who also told me that she was 20 when she's really 24, that she's an Arabian.

She also doesn't lift her tail way up like most of the other Arabians i've met. She lifts it, but not way high.

What do you think? Thanks!

does she have any white markings on her nose (yes, I know she's grey) any pink skin within a white marking (or whiter in this case) means they're not purebred. Even if they have full blood arab papers, something else is in the woodpile, so to speak. That is what my friend that specialized in arabs told me. Also, it's kind of hard to tell from those pics. Winter coat likes to hide form a little.

im no expert, but i dont think she 100% pure. it seems there's a little something else in there. and the breeder lied about age, so he could be lying about her pedigree.

Don't purebred Arabs have black skin? Or horses with quite a bit of Arab blood in them?

This is a black skinned horse but its also a true grey. So was probably born black and turned white as the grey gene took over. Grey is very common in arabs.

Looks Arab to me. She's a little long, but that could just be a conformation "fault." Not all purebred Arab's look the same.
