Shedding or white line?

My farrier is scheduled to come do my mares feet on Sunday. I asked her to come a week early because I'm noticing my mares feet seem to be breaking up a bit. She has some flakey chalky-ness on all 4 feet. The front feet its the area just inside where her shoes are. The hind it's mostly around the edges.

I'm not sure if this chalky breaking up is simply the hoofs shedding or if I couldn't possibly be white line disease. Is there a sure way to tell the difference? Her front right foot is also in the process of shedding the frog which is what made me think maybe her soles are shedding too....

Anyone? The boarding place I moved her too is also pretty rocky so her hind feet are chipping up
