Some breeds handle wet ground better than others but Don noted some excellent points. Snails are the vector for liver fluke and you would have to consider that in a worming program. No doubt some water plants are poisonous, I'm no expert but I know one has digitalis and it would be as toxic to sheep as any other critter. Sheep are not tolerant of any toxic plant that I know of. Would they stay out of the water? Sure but they would try to drink from it regardless of how much you offer from a stock tank or fountain. They would eventually destroy the banks and sure enough one or two will slip in. We are slowly fencing them out of the ditches and as they ar being cleaned now we'll finish that job in the spring.
