The difference between a mechanical cow and a real cow is that you can control every move the cow makes. It's especially good for young horses because they won't get beat and take a hit to their confidence. Plus, you can work them as slow or as fast/hard as you think they need to on that particular day. Putting the mech cow on a slower setting is also great for a person just learning cutting because, in spite of how easy those riders make it look, it takes a lot of work to sit a cutting horse well.
