Publisher's Summary

The heartwarming true story of a blind horse named Joey

At the height of his show career, this beautiful Appaloosa's majestic stature, strength, and willingness to work made him the perfect partner. But when an injury cost Joey his show career, he moved from one owner to the next, ultimately experiencing severe abuse and neglect. A rescue group found Joey nearly dead from starvation - and blind.

Then he came to Hope Reins - a ranch dedicated to helping hurting kids who had been abused, emotionally wounded, or unwanted. By teaching these children to care for rescued animals, the Hope Reins staff were convinced they could reach kids with love and hope and show them that we are never forgotten by God.

But could the financially struggling ranch afford to take care of a blind horse that no one else wanted? Could Joey somehow learn to trust people even though the world had hurt him so badly? And what would happen - to Joey, the kids, and Hope Reins - if they failed?

A true story of friendship destined to become a classic, Joey will touch your heart and reveal the power of finding light in the darkness.

Touching story

This was a wonderful, thought-provoking story about a wonderful therapeutic riding program and one of its foundation horses, Joey. It is a story about how God uses the weak things of the world to teach profound truths.

Beautiful!

I have no words to adequately describe how this book touched my heart. it's written in such way that you feel like you've gotten to know each individual, personally. I shared their joys, triumphs, and sorrows with them and I loved being drawn into the heart of God through their stories.
