First of all, congrats on the new horse!
second, wild spot is just saying that mabye getting another opinion n her hooves from another farrier might be good. The hoof does always keep growing, thus why we have to trim them :) She wasn't trying to make you upset, as you are starting to sound. All she, and now I, am saying, is that maybe getting another farrier to see that crack would be good. If she is fine with shoes already, no prob. Also, she wasnt saying to pull the sgoes. She was just saying to have a vet check her [U]hoof[U], nothing about actually pulling the shoes. So, like I said, I don't think the shoes will hurt her(actually I highly doubt it), and if you are happy with that,fine. But if you ever get interested one day in that crack, just have another farrier look! :)
Once again, congratulations! :)
