I use pure neatsfoot oil....not the compound. I will put it in the microwave to heat it up, then use a sponge brush to paint it on until it no longer soaks in. A really dry saddle will take MANY coats!! Then, after I let it sit for a couple of days, I will take a bar of Glycerin saddle soap, put only enough water in a sponge to barely put the soap on the sponge (if it foams at all, there is too much water on the spong). Then I rub this in well. This will soften the leather and seal it so that the moisture is not lost.
