I can sympathize with your situation, as I was appalled the summer before
last by the damage caused to my newly transplanted seedlings when just one
of my neighbor's steers broke through the fence during the night and
trampled them. Many of these seedlings were stomped completely out of
sight, leaves and all (there was no indication that the critter had grazed
the leaves of any of the iris within his reach). I gave them up for lost,
but about half of them eventually reappeared (not necessarily in the
straight rows in which they had been planted). As these seedlings were not
even thoroughly established (the stomping occurred about three weeks after
transplanting), I think there is a good chance that the irises you are
concerned about will pull through. I tend to agree with Dennis Kramb that
at this time of year any assistance you try to provide might do more harm
than good.

Have faith - irises are tough!!
