If the shoe is breaking off wall to where it SHOULD be which is pretty much the case here, they are WAY overdue lol...That is ALOT of growth. My bet is the farrier isnt taking her foot down enough or is leveling the foot to false sole or some such which is causing her shoes to come off prematurely. Can't say more or anything with certainty without pictures of when the foot was initially set except that these shoes needed reset two weeks ago according to what we have here.
ETA, your horse has pretty nice feet actually. You can see the flairing at the bottom where the wall was overgrown and weakening wanting to self trim the excess. The wall is self trimming pretty decently actually once the shoe was out of its way. If she needs shoes, a good farrier can get a set back on these feet, but if she isnt lame like you say, why bother? I see a pretty nice foot with a few decent trims although she might need to grow a tad bit of wall back. Appears she's growing super fast tho eh?
