    I asked because in my experience plastic pads are harder on the heels than leather they also,plastic,in my opinion, sweat,keeping a moist , humid environment under them, not something that you want if there is any thrush and or fungus going on.

    in my opinion , you need to get that frog engaged in supporting that hoof, i say that because as the hoof spreads from the frog pressure and it s release the blood flow will increase ,feeding the entire hoof. I noticed that 1.5 to 2 inches below the hairline the hoof wall appears scaly, chalky which would say to me that the entire hoof is being compromised.
