Wow that horsehide looks nice. Any pics w/o flash?
Hmmm, so I guess they don't necessarily make them in the order received. I ordered mine through Baker's on December 9th and am still waiting.
Got these Red Dog Semi Dress a couple weeks ago -- haven't had a chance to post the pics. Here's the config and photos:
Custom Semi Dress by White's Boots // Last #38 Swing Last, Sole Leather, Size - Length 11, Hardware Antique Eyes & Hooks, Edge Brown, Upper (Shaft) Leather Red Dog Smooth, Midsole Single, Pull Loops No Thanks, Leather Liner Cream, Sole Trim Close Trim, Toe Vamp Leather Red Dog Smooth, Size - Width D (medium), Toe Cap No Thanks, Celastic Toe Box Single Celastic Toe, Heel Base Standard
Mine were put forth to the factory on Dec 12th and I received them on Jan 26th. I'd contact Bakers and get status.
The original estimate was 5 to 7 weeks. I called at 7 and was told that orders around Christmas can add 2 to 3 more weeks = possibly 10 weeks total. I'm not mad, it's just hard to wait for something as exciting as White's SD.
I requested the Vibram 705 split sole, and will post a pic for Aquaphor when they come in.
As long as they're still aware of the order, I guess you're okay. If you haven't, try to get a hold of Kyle from Baker's. He was really helpful with my order.
Here's my collection of the Brown Horse Hide Photos:

That horse hide is beautiful! Wear them in good health!
gd1944: Great looking makeup. Congrats!
herrmj: Glad you liked them. I really want to go on that White's tour too. I'm in Seattle as well but it's a long road trip. Please do share the photos.
my order just entered into its 5th week, so i thought i'd send an S.O.S._ Ship Our Shoes, already
pm'd be quite alright... you also got my email. 'hope White's took care of the Bison TC+Backstay. request.
thanx in advance, Kyle!

2012 White's Horse Hide Semi Dress
Toe Cap Leather Color Brown Horse Hide, Sole Vibram Composition Half Sole, Size - Length 8.5, Hardware All Brass Eyes, Edge Natural, Upper (Shaft) Leather Brown Horse Hide, Midsole Single, Pull Loops No Thanks, Last #38 Swing Last, Sole Trim Close Trim, Toe Vamp Leather Brown Horse Hide, Heel Base 90 Degree Blocked off Heel (Traveler), Heel Lifts 1/4" Lower, Size - Width E, Toe Cap Leather Toe Cap (only available on plain toe style), Celastic Toe Box Single Celastic Toe, Leather Liner Black
Got mine today! pretty much just like the retro/original brown dress single sole with the tan liner and close sole trim. Fits awesome! Went TTS BTW.
I bought my brother one too but unknown to me he had already ordered straight from white`s so he had to return it and have it exchanged for a filson 256 I think. Props to Kyle for the outstanding service.
I`ll see how this one breaks in and I will put another order though the recent emergence of all these actual pics of other colors are making it hard
Anyone have a pair of black horse hide? Thinking about ordering a pair.
