I'm not seeing anything horrid. They all definitely need a trim. Some of the hooves look like they could have underrun heels but that is most likely because the toe looks long from the sole shot. But I am far from a professional just trying to chime in to tell you they don't look horrid. I have seen far worse.

I see a possibility of underrun heels on the first horse if they aren't watched..but otherwise, the feet all look pretty decent. The heels could stand to come down a bit/quarters could be a little less dished, but I don't see anything I'd kick a farrier to the curb for, to be honest.

The filly's toes could stand to come a bit shorter in time, but nothing too bad.

The second two horses hind toes are WAY too long and are creating a broken back angle in the coffin joint. They need to be shortened from the front, not the bottom. If you want to trim them yourself, map the foot to the live sole using the tip of the frog as a marker and trim again. You will see just how long those toes actually are and a sole short will show you how far forward the heels are from the back of the frog (underrun) Barefoot Hoof Care - Page 1

The top horses heels actually look too long and too far forward from here. The pictures are not the best with the snow but I can see each horse has issues that should be addressed. The worst being the long back toes that have misaligned the coffin joints and are pulling the heels under the foot.

Havent got time for much now, but it appears all horses are stretched/flared forward(& around) to some degree - some VERY long. All have long, mostly underrun heels - some VERY long. Some appear likely to have a negative plantar angle - few of the backs.
