She's gone :D

 Irene has moved on.... didn't leave anything but a stiff breeze and some showery rain.  Now it's just beginning to clear up . All is fine here- nothing damaged, dry chickens and happy horses out grazing in the fields !  The new chickens - thanks Heather !!!-  are doing fine. Starlight has decided perhaps being w/ her " peeps" is alot better than galvanting about the farm all by herself.  I had to herd her into an empty stall in order to capture her and return her to her friends .  The little peeps are ADORABLE- teeny little things , all colored differently. Lucky- Emmi's only chick is growing by leaps n' bounds- and oh wow, she is SO friendly. She follows my shoes, and loves taking dirt baths in the stalls- Yes, WITH the drafters in them too.  Here's some photos I got today. Also- one of a very soggy squirrel in our barn's parking lot and one of Scarlet .
