No your right, it came up as a small image on screen. But that's kinda weird- he has the bosalita underneath and it looks like a get down going to the left of him, but it's not tied around the neck(from what I can see) then ran through the bosalita back to him. And he doesn't have a set of reins like he would with a two-rein..... hmmm. Photo shopped?
I also agree that he was too forward on the cutter you have to sit back or you get in their way(or fall off!).
The mule, I can't tell what he is being ridden in from the picture, it's not clear enough for me. Yes, Pat's looking at the cow and not the mule which is good, but unfortunately the mule is distracted by the "maestro arm" as you put it..LOL
I DON'T LEAD 'EM AND FEED 'EM, I RIDE 'EM AND SLIDE 'EM.
