I would consider what sky said, using a rope. If you gently and patiently ask her pick up her hind w rope and she does comply w/o being poopy about it, then maybe doing that many times would communicate to her that you just want her to pick it up and don't intend to get aggressive like the farrier might have. Otherwise, if it were me, plan "b" would be - ace her and get it cleaned and doctored.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
