Can't say from those pics whether they 'need' to stay that high(is that foot 'clubby'?) generally, but from the point of view of the crack it's not helpful that it's weightbearing & excessive. So I'd take it back, that side at least, but if she 'needs' to be clubby, then she may need some other form of support.
I've drawn on one of the pics to give an idea what 'ideal' might be, which also illustrates the deformation at the toe, which I don't know whether it's been addressed or not. Green lines show *roughly* what the foot would look like if ideal/lined up with internal structures & blue lines show *roughly* where I'd probably trim - very rough idea with only these pics to go on tho. I wouldn't shoe the horse until her feet are healthy, but if you are, I'd make sure the toe of the shoe wasn't forward of where it should be, and would ensure that quarter/heel wasn't loaded.
