What Pattern Is She?

So first I am going to say two things:
1. I know pretty much nothing about the different paint patterns besides their names, sabino, tobiano, frame, splash, overo etc.
2. This mare is not my horse, she is just one of the ones at my barn. I am trying to learn about the different coat patterns so I though I would ask about hers. I know that she is very very...well kept, shall we say, she has been a pasture puff on very good grass and no grain for the past couple of months. So no comments about that please :)

Now onto the actual horse!! So from reading one of the threads that sorta described the different patterns, I guess she is a tobiano???
She is a registered paint, her registered name is Miss Painted Speck, we call her Nutty.
Sorry the pics are kind of close up, they were taken with her on the cross ties :)

Right side of her neck(her mane is half white and half black, I braided it up so you could see her neck)

Right front leg

Right side

Right hind leg

Her chest and right side

Her tail

And her face

As I said before I know next to nothing about all this so if you would eplain your opinions I would be gratefulQ

Tobiano, yes. Possibly splash with the snip on her nose and I want to say frame's in there too because of the way that one leg's got black so far down. Frame does not want white on the legs and tries to color them.

I agree with Po. Tobiano for sure, splash and frame.

Thanks guys, I have a question, would it be the tobiano or the splash that's causing the white in her tail? Just trying to learn:)

Tobiano. Minimal tobianos often have white in their tails, it is one of the classic things tobiano will do. This foal is a good example:

Tobiano and frame would be my guess.
