Left Hoof or Fetlock Point Toward Left

Y 4 1/2 yr old Mustang/Quarter horse mare had a pretty bad abscess in her front left hoof. It started near the toe and the farrier dug it out and it started to seem better but then came out the cornet band. The vet and farrier suggest shoes when it started to grow out the toe b/c she was tender.

Now she is doing a lot better but now it is turning out toward the outside (left) and so does the other hoof(also pointing to the left) but no where near as bad. I can't really tell if it is the hoof or the fetlock. Do you think if could possibly be from the shoeing or the abscess? She was a little bit off a couple days after she was shoed last week but I just thought it was b/c she had just had new shoes.

Do you have pictures of the hooves in question? Might help in a possible suggestion.
