From the pics, the walls in the front look very thin. If it was a bevel at the bottom, at 3 weeks, I would expect to see thicker walls, so maybe the walls are thin. Add hoof vitamins.
Could be that whatever stress was creating that, with thin walls, it may have been easier to get the way they are.
Was there any stress in the horse about 4months, give or take? Whatever it was, even too tall heels, may have caused the wall to break if your walls are really thin.
If your farrier didn't notice this 3 weeks ago, and you can get him out now, I would because he may have had experience with this in the past.
The pictures also make the hooves look unbalanced side to side. In the pics it looks like the hooves are leaning to one side.
