Her pasterns seem to look okay to me too.
A good, quality pair of protective boots is a good idea for any horse doing speed events like barrels. I personally use the Professional's Choice brand sport boots on all 4 feet, along with bell boots on the front legs.
I just got a new pair of SMB 3 this summer and I loved them! They fit absolutely great. But I do also have older pairs of the SMB 2 and also the SMB combo boot. Both also good, but I do certainly like the design of the SMB 3 better.
The combo boots are good too but the only downfall of the combo boots is that the bell boots tend to wear out quicker than the boot itself.
The oldest pair of boots I have are the SMB 2 and they are at least 7 years old ... and still in near perfect condition. So if you take care of them, they will last you a long time and be a good investment.
Don't even bother with the cheapo off-brands that are only like $20 for a pair of boots. They are junk. I know this because I tried them too. They are stiff, they don't fit the contour of the leg very well, and they don't hold up near as well.
