Weatherproofing pony hair

The blog entry about weatherproofing suede got me thinking about pony hair. I recently purchased my first pair of shoes that are pony hair, pointy leopard pumps. Beings that I'm in Seattle, I certainly am interested in what are the do's and don't's of this material, and if there's anything I can do to improve their chances of survival here. Any thoughts on weatherproofing pony hair shoes?

    I found a thread about pony hair shoes here: (they say you can just pop in Nine West store and ask what kind to use, they should know and they sell waterproofing sprays)

    Thanks ladies. My waterproofing stuff is for suede only so I'll have to pick up something special I guess. Guess I'll make a stop at Nordstroms soon :)
