She needs a good trim . That is the place to start. The splits in the outer wall are likely indicative of a prior nutritional imbalance. So I would just get her a decent trim to begin then watch and see how the new hoof wall begins to grow in from the top now that she is in her new home.

When a person isn't used to horse smell the hooves do stink. With thrush the odor will cause a retreat reaction the first time it's smelled. I find fresh hoof trimmings stink but nothing like thrush.
