Visiting Hooves Miniature Therapy Horses & Bunnies update: The back stall is done in the bus. Now to finish the front stall. Soon the therapy horses will travel in air conditioned comfort.
I am so grateful to our loyal supporters!!! Donations have been coming in to complete the Visiting Hooves bus ! The stalls are almost finished and we just need to put down rubber mats, and replace the back bumper. It should be fully completed this weekend except for the advertising logos and wording on the outside. This is so thrilling!

Astrophysicist Ethan Siegel asks: Is Humanity Ignoring Our First Chance For A Mission To An Oort Cloud Object?
“Fantastically, we have two launch windows for a mission to Sedna, if we were interested in going. Why are we not clamoring for this mission, and for the potential chance to explore the Oort cloud for the first time?!
