Nope... She dosn't have any arab in her.. she's a registered paint. Interesting observation tho.. I've never thought of that myself :)

Very good-looking filly! She's nicely stuck together even though it's very hard to tell what they'll end up looking like at this age! But I can almost garantee she's going to be very stocky and stout - really nice muscling on her already. Is she a breeding stock? I can't see any big white patches, I was just curious.
It's very hard to tell if they'll be downhill or not when they grow up because foals grow butt-first.. sounds wierd, but it's true; their haunches will shoot up past their withers then their withers will catch up eventually. What are you planning on using her for?

ps. very nice coloring - I'd say she'll shed out a little lighter than black (you can see some dark brown in some pictures) so not a "true black" but close enough for my liking anyways!! Oh, and her markings are gorgeous

Her butt is higher than her withers (duh..she's still growing... the butt grows first, then the back and withers catch up later...)

Thanks so much for all your feedback! Both her parents were stocky horses, so yes, I'm asuming she'll be the same. I'm not too sure what 'breeding stock' means, but she's a solid... which I don't mind. It is strange that they grow butt first.. I never noticed on my other foal.. but then again that was 10 years ago! LoL. I'm not sure what I'll do with her... I did drill team for 5 years, and now that I'm done with that my options are open.. depends on how big she gets... I ride western, but have been wanting to try english... we'll see! she'll definately be doing trails! Thanks again :)

No problem!
Breeding stock is a fancy term for a solid paint.
She looks nice for doing whatever you have planned for her in the future.. I would certainly look at buying a foal that good-looking :)
Best of luck with her!
