Even if she wont hold her feet up for long if you can start to get them on and she puts her foot down you can probably finish the job. Don't be afraid to handle her feet either, to many people think that their horse is just impossible to pick out because they are afraid of being stepped on or just general fear of the damage a hoof can cause. Be deliberate and end on success, she will figure it out.
EZ boots are awesome! That's what I was going to suggest
My fox trotter gelding developed a horrid case of white line two years ago. He has horrible feet anyways, so this really scared me as he was starting to have some slight rotation. I prefer to keep my horses unshod and his feet won't hold shoes well anyways, so I kept ezboots on him. I took them off once a day for like an hour to medicate, but other than that they were always on. If you can't afford a stall for her, could you maybe keep her in a round pen and pile it with sand or shavings? Mud is really not going to help the situation. I moved my gelding down to an all sand environment and his feet are nearly 100% recovered. Good luck! Feet issues are never fun.
