She has pretty much stopped growing though. She has been out to pasture for most of her life. Could nutritional problems e a probability?

I agree "get a new vet".
Act as if it were you, or a loved one that just stated stumblin around
A horse that stumbles around in nature is called a dead horse
Vet shop like you would shop for any product or service; call experts and barns and look at qualifications. Some equine vets are younger, and may see a few equines while focusing on small animals. Some equine vets have been in the business 40 or more years treating only equines.
NOT to scare you, but your horse may have:
1). Neurological issues either congenital, acquired (EMP), reaction to wormers, vacines, bad trimmin
2). Serious injury (kicked by another horse?)
3). Oh, the list goes on and on
A vet you pay, should go do a thourough evaluation, present you with a list of findings (scores every area of the horse and make notes), present possible causes, discuss tests and costs of tests, and discuss possible treatement plan
Best Wishes to you, God Bless
