I am convinced my horse needs pads in his boots.

I have reg easyboots for him. I called the rep and she suggested the 6mm. But I also have 1 size up epics, so she said that if I got the 12mm I might be able to use those too and the pad would help the fit.
So I am not sure which I am going to do yet, but I now see there are many times of hoof pads. which are the best?

thinline? I have heard good things. But do they do more than shock absorb? This horse really needs protection from rocks he can feel through the easyboot.
then I saw these: http://cgi.ebay.com/Hoof-Pad-2-Pair-5-75-X-5-75_W0QQitemZ350305391690QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_Defa ultDomain_0?hash=item518fd4144a#ht_3358wt_905

then there are these delta pads (although I don't have delta boots)

So many choices! Please help and share experiences. I would (and my horse) really appreciate it.
