One of the tasks required to bandaging is to roll the bandage into a tight roll.  This is how I do it.

Also shown here is how to apply a standing leg wrap to apply even pressure to compress any limb fluid (edema) back into the vascular system.  What I did not make clear in this video is that the white sheet cotton remains visible at the top and the bottom in the finished image (also seen in an image below).  Applying a wrap directly to the limb without the padding of the cotton underneath can lead to too much compression and blocking blood flow numbing the leg or worse.  Only with adequate training are grooms capable of applying a wrap without cushion beneath.  This is common in sports where light protection is needed.
