Without seeing the picture it's hard to says what is different about these cowboys (but I know old cowboys better than I know checkers) so I'll take a guess and say they are playing checkers while sitting on their horses, which is different than most checkers players we find sitting in chairs.

They are both ghosts sitting at a table playing checkers outside the general store and you can see right through them. (Cont.)

I found the picture, it's by artist Charles Blaylock and it was made into a jigsaw puzzle.
