Well, no telling how long, but one thing is for sure - the sooner you begin, the sooner her hooves will reach their full potential. No matter what, that will require that you start training her to be polite when you handle her feet. I wouldn't wait until she is trained to get a farrier out, though. I would start farrier shopping asap, tell them she may be difficult and why and ask if they can ace her (no point in a struggle, IMO).
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
