Does anyone have any clue as to why Mark Shepard gives video tours of his farm with a milk-jug full of water.

I have seen two separate videos where he has this thing. At some points he puts the jug behind his neck, so I thought he might have some sort of neck cramp all the time.

Alas, I am confounded.
Maybe you have to walk a few acres with a jug of water to figure out why.

My neighbor does the same thing. If you are going to buy bottled water--you can pay 1.99 for a pint or .88 for a gallon.

I'm not convinced that he's drinking it. I have yet to see him take a sip.
A weight of sorts?

My personal opinion is that if he didn't have the jug of water he would have problems with gravity and might hover or fly away.

Mark replied... "Mark Shepard, Restoration Agriculture : I drink water. It gets HOT in the summer. I sweat. I'm not small. A 1L bottle ain't enough... !"

I remember growing up, seeing my Granddad with a big jug of water ,wherever he went on his ranch in South Dakota.
 
But how did the elephant get like that? What did you do? I think all we can do now is read this tiny ad:
