promoting hoof growth and hardening hooves

  My horse has good feet (no chips, cracks or stone-bruising), 
but he is barefoot now and his feet are not growing at all. His 
hoof walls are worn to the sole at the toe, front and back.  I 
use easy boots in front, and will probably need to get some for 
in back as well since his rear feet are worn too.

I currently feed about 2 lbs 10% sweet feed and 1 oz Mega Mag 
per day (nutritional info for Mega Mag follows) plus hay and 
chopped forage.  He is on %100 turn-out (field board).  Is 
there any supplment or dressing that will promote hoof growth 
and/or harden hooves?  Also, someone recommneded provodine 
iodine to harden hooves - anyone know anything about this?
