Questioning the breed of my PMU rescue baby

Hey all,
I adopted my mare almost 2 years ago, knowing she was a PMU baby. I am debating on getting a DNA test done on her to try and find out her breed. Before I go and spend money on that, I was hoping I could get another set of eyes on her to see if anyone saw a specific characteristic that I havn't noticed. Here is some info on her.

Height: 14.3
Sex:mare
Temperment: EXTREEMLY calm
Age: 3
Brown/white Tobiano paint
She has a horse size head, but a pony size body.
She has a VERY large stride
She is not gaited
Her legs are stocky like a QH, her body is narrow and thin like a TB, and her head is stocky and thick like a draft. I know its a possibility that she could very well be a mix of all of these, but I wanted to get some other oppenions.

It didn't work.. if it's a URL, you can just post it or click the picture icon. If it's a file on your computer, click the paperclip icon and upload it.

There is no DNA test to verify a horse's breed that I am aware of...

The only DNA testing available is within breed registries to verify the horse's parentage. There isn't a DNA test out there to test for the horse's specific breed. A picture that works might help....
