I'd be contacting your farrier (or reaching out to those members here in the profession) as they may be more familiar with conditions specific to the hoof than your vet.

He said if we can dry it up, that will help. He's a very good vet and said he sees no reason to give up on her at only a few hours old. And he's a very straight to the point guy. She is eating very well out of a bottle. He said we don't give up until she does.And with help she can take about 8 steps. He said to keep her off them as much as possible.

Did he take any internal views (ie xrays) of the actual structures within the hoof to be sure there is underlying structure to support the external structures if you are able turn them around?

Was the baby born early or something?

She does look like she has hooves. And the things on the bottom do look a lot like the foal slippers that was posted earlier in this link:

I wouldn't give up on her yet. The foal slippers just may not be drying up and falling off properly for some reason.
