Hooves grow and wear depending on the time of year, weather, diet, terrain, riding, etc, etc. If they grow faster than they wear, they will start chipping no matter how short you trim them, and it is typically just cosmetic. If it really bothers you, learn to clean them up with a rasp in between trims or just have your farrier out more often.
