"The term “wind puffs” is commonly used to describe any puffiness in the area of the horse’s ankle. The two structures that can fill with fluid in the horse's ankle are the fetlock joint capsule and the flexor tendon sheath. "

I've always been told that they are there permanently.

When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk: he trots the air; the earth sings when he touches it; the basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes. ~William Shakespeare

I've been told that they can be drained...but that they will come back every few months.
