How are her feet? Before and after pics

We are going to have a farrier out, we just aren't sure when because the only guy in the area that does it is booked and he didn't know when he'd be available.
I trimmed up Chanti's front feet myself to prevent her feet from cracking. Her left front has always had a crack, you can see it from the bottom of her hoof to her coronet band, and when her foot gets long it starts splitting at the toe so we touch it up with a rasp as needed. All I use is a rasp and once in a while I use the hoof knife to trim away flaky frog, if it's peeling and already loose. I admit I'm not by any means a pro but I'm not completely stupid when it comes to trimming and I feel I can handle touch up trims like this.
So first will be before the trim of the left front. And second is the sole view. On the right side, right at the bar, there's an area, like a flap that I couldn't trim off with the knife. I could get up and under it with the hoof pick and it felt like there was a "pocket" under it. I didn't want to mess with it much because I wasn't sure what it was.
3rd pic is the after pic, and 4th is after the trim showing the sole. I don't use the hoof knife and dig any sole out and I had let her walk around and graze in the yard so her hoof was a little dirty.
Next post will be right front.

Ok, right front.
Before trim is first pic. Second pic is the sole before trim.
3rd is after the trim.
4th is after the trim showing the sole.
5th is both after the trim.
6th is left front from the side, but I can't remember if I took it before trim or not. Last pic is right after trim.

Actually, looking at the pics, the last 2, the side view ones, must have been taken before the trim, because I don't think I took anymore from the side after I trimmed her. I think I should have though, it would have helped me see if there was any difference.

Anyone? I'm probably going to have shoes put on her fronts, but I'd like to know if her heels are under run, if that white line is ok,etc.

Not to offend but these feet need more than a touch up. You need to get a farrier out as this horse needs corrective care. Its ok to rasp in between farrier visits. Do you ride her alot? If not, you may not need shoes, if trimmed properly. My suggestion is to have a farrier out to give you an opinion or suggestion.

As stated in my very first post.....We are going to have a farrier out.....
The only farrier who could do it was booked, he's a guy we had never heard of but he went to Oklahoma for it and hasn't been out of school long. I don't ride her much but the pasture is rocky and she's tender on gravel. She has problems with bruising and she's abcessed twice, once in each front foot. That left fore always cracks if the toe is too long. She injured the hoof when she was 3 months old, she knocked a big chunk out so bad it looked like her hoof was split like a cow's. My old farrier worked on it but said the crack would have to just grow out and it'd take a year, so I put her on Majesty's bio plus hoof wafers and in 30 days there wasn't a crack. You can always see a faint line showing where the crack runs though. She toes out, worse on right fore, which is why I think she has shoulder soreness but she's 6 now so trying to correct that isn't going to help and will only make it worse probably.

As you said, the farrier does need to come out.

However it looks like you did a good job taking a little bit off until that time. :)
