Water plants in general aren't poisonous to sheep. In fact, I understand that some sheep on Scottish islands make a substantial part of their living from washed-up seaweed.

HOWEVER, sheep don't handle wet ground well. If it's permanently damp underfoot they'll probably get footrot, which is horrible, and it would be cruel to expose them to that. They also tend to fall prey to parasites (such as liver fluke, also some worms) in damp conditions.
