My farrier has recommended it before,  but said to make sure it’s real, or 100%, or true (one of those 3, I forget) turpentine. I guess most of the ones sold for horse feet are not....

 

i now love Keratex Hoof Hardener. My Farrier also recommended it. It’s expensive, but works!!! I paint it on the sole but avoid the frog and heel bulb.

Yes, make sure it's Venice turpentine, NOT the turpentine you get at the paint store. Two completely different things.

Farrier has suggested Keratex Hoof Hardener for my guy. He then suggested I switch to Farrier Barrier for the wet/dry transitions we have in the summer here.

Venice turpentine packed for multiple days or Magic Cushion. Both of these only toughen the sole. You want to grow sole, sometimes equithane pads for a couple cycles will allow him to grow sole. OE Hoof Evolution has a vasodilator in it along with hoof supp. If you don’t have good circulation in the foot, not much grows. 

Hardening what you’ve got would be the first step.
