Lucky girl!
For a single source of online information, Sheep101.info (http://www.sheep101.info/) is a site for 4-H and FFA members produced by a sheep and goat specialist in Maryland, Susan Schoenian. You may need to complement this with some information that is more relevant to raising sheep in Florida.

Florida A&M Small Ruminant Program lists a number of Sheep Resources (online fact sheets & websites, books, and magazines) that are geared for sheep producers:
