About this item

“A touching tale.” —Kirkus Reviews

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.

This memoir was the most touching book I’ve read in a very long time. As expected, I fell in love with Joey but what I didn’t expect was how much I would care for so many others in Joey’s story. It would be hard to pick a favorite character. Through them I was reminded that we are all in need of hea...see moreof the reviewer's review

I really enjoyed reading Joey! I started to tear up in the first few pages and wondered if I'd make it through, but I just couldn't put it down. The stories about how a few people and a neglected, blind horse started changing lives was encouraging - we all really do have something to offer to the wo...see moreof the reviewer's review
