I think you've done a very nice job! I think that no matter how long anyone trims, there's always something that "new eyes" can pick up on and sort of guide another person.
I think that last foot has gotten it's sulcus chewed up by thrush. That happened on my horse once. I used Durasole, but there are a bunch of products out there that work well. I also used durasole faithfully on some white line my horse had as well.
With white line, and some cracks, I would take something and tap around on the hoof wall and see if it sounds hollow anywhere. If not, I would think that long crack is just superficial.
I think the more you trim, the more you will see. I think it's hard sometimes to see every little thing that needs fixing when your brain is focusing on one or two major things (to you).
I hope the horse knows what good fortune he had finding you!
