Half plough?

Hi, sorry for the silly question, but is half plough and half shoulderstand the same pose?

I have never heard of a pose called half plow or half shoulderstand. Can you explain it a bit better please?

half plow where you are in plow but one leg is straight up in the air, to me half shoulderstand looks like this also. Am I right or are they different?

In Germany they refer to this: as half plough (Ardha Halasana) but I am not actually aware of any pose called half plough or half shoulderstand: though I've linked to one there.

Looks like the legs simply do not come up to the vertical plane. But again I'm not familiar with it so perhaps someone along the way just created ot as a mod and named it? I have no idea. But from these two pictures I believe it's clear that whomever IS doing them, teaching them, is doing so with two different versions for each one.
