With these and the radiographs, it's safe to say this isn't endocrinopathic laminitis, at least not EMS related. The best thing for her soles is described here .

It's possible she has either bouts of IR that accompany trying to ovulate or a systemic inflammatory response at that time. I don't know what blood testing is available to you but I would definitely have her ovaries ultrasounded to check for cysts when she's painful and consider having them removed. Otherwise, I sent you a link to a Chasteberry/Vitex product available in AU in an earlier post.
