    Do you think I should fence the brook off for sheep keeping purposes?

    I would. It looks like they'd have a hard time getting out should they fall in. And sheep can die very easily from stress alone.

    Sorry if this is off topic, but are you sure you're allowed to have sheep on that tiny lot?

    Well you obviously can't see all of it on the pictures. It's about 3/4 of an acre.
    And the sheep I'm planning to get are ouessant, for which stocking density is 10 to an acre! They weigh aboitb 18kg when fully grown!
