Does she look like any other breed?

Hey everyone.
You might have seen my post "feathers"...anyways,forget that post.
I am curious if my horse looks like she is anything else besides paint..maybe she is actually a pinto? Her head is oversized for her body.
She has large pasterns( she wears large in bell boots) but a breast collar she would need a cob size and her girth size is a 42. To me she seems a bit off in areas. I love her very much! I was just curious if that big of hers means she might have another breed in her that I wasn't aware of.
Let me know what you think because I am really curious and thinking about doing a DNA test.

BTW,no comments on the chain. I learned that it can actually do harm so I don't do it anymore.

I don't think her head is out of proportion to her body, and from the pictures I think she just looks like a typical Paint or Quarter Horse. That's just me though. I could easily be wrong. She's very pretty though. :)

I would rather stand near the birds, than spend my whole life wishing I had wings.

To me it looks (without the spots) she could easily be a albino.

I am pretty sure the term 'pinto' is referring to a colored horse that is not registered with APHA. Is she registered?

My 'paint' mare is not registered with APHA, so she is technically pinto and I have registered her with NPHR just as a grade horse.

Most 'Paint' horses are crosses of Quarter Horses and Thoroughbreds.
