I would have called the farrier immediately, not to accuse but to let him know what is going on. You didn't so do it now. They know feet, there may be something he could do.
Stop worrying about the feelings of the farrier! He would want to know.
Sorry to sound so harsh but something needs to be done.
ETA: Sorry, I didn't see your post about the vet. I'd still call the original farrier
