Question thin soles sore footed. would hoof supplement help? or dura sole?

My gelding has thin soles on front feet and very sore footed. His diet is good hay is tested and gets a vit/min supplement to cover what hay lacks.

So would a hoof supplement help? Or would dura sole be better?iam working on getting his hoofs in better shape. Getting under run heels fixed and other issues. Getting him hoof boots later this week local tack shop carrys brand I want.

Need input my horse needs help he very sore and not comfortable on his feet. He also gets extra mg in his diet just started last week. He gets alfalfa pellets to get supplement only a cup soaked.

I've had good luck using Jim Rickens Foot Formula: good for thrush, bruises and tender feet. The horse horse people near me use it alot, too.
