I'm not seeing draft. There are some lines that are sturdy top to bottom and have good bone in the leg.

Paint, which is basically QH + color. And yes, it is a breed, but that's essentially what the breed is just to give you some more info, if you have a lot of QHs that makes sense.

It's possible there's something else in there. I could go with pure Paint, Paint x, QH x... but definitely a large portion of one of those. She is a little heavier then average, but not enough to make me convinced there's anything else in there. She's also obese which throws off the eye.

It's tricky cause some horses mimic purebreds... I could see a Gypsy x QH (lighter build) ending up like this for example. And while QHs can be more easy keepers it's possible that there's something else that's even more of an easy keeper in there. Or she's just overfed lol

I've known plenty of purebred stock horses with good bone like she has.

I also do not much draft, she looks like a paint I used to ride. She's just a bit...big bodied. Maybe her high neck and wither 'suggested' draft at first. I know I personally equate draft to mean convex thick ol' neck but I'm not the most knowledgeable in horse breeds minus body type. A lot of horses (especially the warmbloods to me) look nearly indistinguishable haha. Certainly not as easy as dog breeds..

She looks like a good old-fashioned grade stock type horse to me. Kind of horse that was ubiquitous in California when I was growing up. This one happens to be pinto.
Most of the registered Paint Horses I have seen have a fancier look to them, more like colored AQHA. We had a 14 hand pony built and colored much like her, in the 1970's, and a white 14.2 horse off a ranch, same build.

What makes you say Belgian @greentree ? Curious as I raised Belgians and Belgian crosses and I'm just not seeing it.

Paints can be a solid color, also! Definitely a Pinto though.
