Preview: John Mitchell: Working the Mechanical Cow

John gives NCHA Horse of the Year Junie Wood, a maintenance work on the machine. He works any aged horse in a similar fashion, and has the machine on a program to make him watch and pay attention to his position on the cow. The nail you see in part one is used as a reference point and is positioned on the wither of the mechanical cow. John wants to simulate a real cow as much as possible, by having little delay in the stop to help Junie understand to get prepared for the turn. He also makes sure Junie doesn’t back away before the cow turns. He wants her to hold and wait!

Part 1
This video is from the cow's perspective. The nail in the foreground is used as a reference point and is placed on the wither of the cow. John begins his work steady, with a stop, draw and then go catch up. As the work progresses, he focuses on keeping Junie even with the cow.
Part 2
This is the same work as part one, however we present it from behind with John and Junie Wood.
Part 3
In part three, we split the screen so you can now watch from both perspectives at once.
