Georgia, Then and Now

Here’s my post from June 4, 2010, shortly after our scarehawk George became Georgia.

Georgia is our new scarecrow.  Well, technically I suppose Georgia is a scarehawk, since her job is to keep hawks away from the henhouse.  But I’ve never heard the word “scarehawk” used before, and we all know what a scarecrow is.

That’s Georgia in the photo above, newly decked out by Cherie and Peyton.  Georgia was, until recently, George.  But George’s clothes had begun rotting and falling off of him and he’d become a pretty unconvincing mannequin.  So Cherie and Peyton gave George a makeover and he/she emerged as Georgia.

Georgia is, to the best of my knowledge, our first transgendered object on White Flint Farm.

We are hoping the hawks don’t like her.

Georgia’s transformation was modest, evidenced only by the purse and the feminine hat.

But look at her now.

She doesn’t look much like a country girl these days.
