Update: got a new farrier out, my 3rd one. The second was great til except now I cant reach him, so I called a younger lady who seems really good :) but anyways its not as bad as it looks and now that she is properly trimmed there is a frog :) Her foot looks completely normal now :) still some thrush but it should clear up better now that she doesn't have so much room for the mud to build up in and her frog had some flaps and rough spots which also trapped the thrush and mud. Now that she is all cleaned up everything is fine and back to normal :)

Lesson learned: don't trust a professional just cause they are a "professional" and learn enough about the topic to be able to tell if said professional really knows what they are doing. I didn't know anything about feet but I researched as much as I could and know better for next time. Just sucks I learned the hard way.

But glad to report all is good, just a tiny bit of thrush left and its on the mend :)
