Yeah, looks reasonable again.
Looks like you pared into live sole on the right fore & left hind which is not a good move IMO, especially as it seems the front soles are rather too thin/flat anyway. Agree with Trail horse that generally speaking, unless you *know* you have a very good reason, it is a good move to avoid taking any sole at all that is not already about to come off. Agree that while it shouldn't be the case, horse's soles are indeed often way too thin. Healthy feet can have soles thick or thicker than the walls tho, as the capsule, inc sole & frog is the 'armour plating' of the horse's foot.
I don't believe it's a reasonable assumption that Mother Nature/God/evolution.... (substitute whoever you believe in) stuffed up so badly as to build an animal with the base of the foot too weak to be useful. I think wild(healthy hoofed) equids & other ungulates bear out that theory too.
Walls at quarters on hinds & poss also on fores are too long. Can't really tell from those angles but looks like walls all round & toes particularly need stronger rolling.
Front heels *may* be too high, but depends on horse's comfort & terrain IMO. Back heels may be bit long & underslung but can't really tell from those angles. Shots of feet on the ground don't tell much because they need to be taken squarely & from near ground level to be most accurate.
Have you found a good farrier/trimmer who can oversee/advise you on the work? I find there are virtually no hard & fast rules in this game, just guidelines, so you need to understand why things are done or not, to know when they should or not, how much, etc, etc.
