    That is a hatchery/barnyard toulouse also known as 'gray' geese by some hatcheries.

    She looks like a hatchery bird to me, her type looks off and all. She could be a cross of dewlap toulouse onto a gray, that might explain the dewlap and small size. If you breed her back to a dewlapped gander it should make the dewlap better.

    How old is she? I would guess Dewlap Toulouse. It takes 3 years for the dewlap to come in.
