OK all of you leather care types out there.  I just bought my first pair
of leather paddock boots (I'm SOO tired of having wet feet before I can
get mounted in my sneakers.)  How/what should I do to keep them supple
and water proof before I wear them?

Once a month I clean my Blunnies with Leather New, give them a good coat of pure neatsfoot oil (not the mix, only pure) and let soak overnight, then coat with Fiebing's Mink Oil Paste. They last years this way and I step in water every time I go to the barn.
