Did he do a roll on the toe or just a sharp edge? I find some farriers who do a basic "pasture trim" just file them to a sort of point and they end up chipping very quickly.
Here is my mares hoof after a trim. This is what you need to be working toward.
If your farrier isn't doing something similar, see if he is willing to try or look for a new farrier.
Here is another photo at 7 weeks after a trim:
