I have read the article and some posts concerning wind puffs but remain in the dark about: 1. Do they ever go away? and, 2. Should a leg with wind puffs be wrapped when that horse is worked or does it matter? I realize they are mostly cosmetic, but I'm not sure of the different causes. Any help?

Taking the questions in order:
1) usually
2) if it is worsening they should be wrapped

We are currently heavily editing and adding articles on swellings including windpuffs Jo. It should be up this week which should answer your questions on causes.
