Does anyone know anything about windpuffs? My TB mare has one (possibly two) along her front cannon bone. My friend who worked at a TB race barn said she's seen a lot of TB's with windpuffs, but that they are harmless. My question is... how do you get rid of them? And why do they appear? I've been hosing her legs down after each ride and using front boots for support. I've also been putting rubbing alcohol on the windpuff, as she suggested.
Any other ideas/thoughts?
ETA: The windpuffs are firm and not hot. She is also not lame and doesn't show soreness undersaddle.
