    It's hard to tell with these photos. Get some new photos from ground level straight on, sides, and the sole. The heals appear to be underrun some and longish toe - but it's hard to tell from these pictures.

    Not the best pics to tell much(club foot??), but what is obvious is she has flared(disconnected) walls and quite high, contracted looking heels. She very likely has 'upright' pasterns *because* of her high heels. I would suggest you learn about hoof function and anatomy, and the factors that effect them, to learn where your farriers have gone wrong & how to correct it.

    If you were to send some pics of her feet on the ground from near ground level, front- & side-on and a few solar pics of various angles(pref bare, pre & post trim), along with some info on her management, work, soundness etc, myself and others here that know their stuff could give you a more detailed opinion/advice, if you like.
