Joey needed a second chance.
The ranch needed a miracle.
With her fledgling horse therapy ranch, Hope Reins, in dire financial trouble, the last thing Kim Tschirret needed was one more problem. But when she met Joey, a former prize- winning jumper who had been abandoned, neglected, and malnourished to the point of blindness, she saw in him the same God-given potential she saw in every abused and abandoned child her ministry was created to serve.
So, despite the challenges that would come with caring for a blind and wounded horse, Kim took a leap of faith and brought Joey home to Hope Reins.
But as Joey struggled to adapt to his new surroundings, trainers, and stable mate, the staff’s confidence began to falter. Could Joey learn to trust again—to connect with the children who needed him so badly? What if they couldn’t take care of Joey? And how much longer could they afford to try?
A heartwarming story of loyalty, friendship, and healing, Joey is an inspiring reminder that every life has a purpose—and a profound testament to the power of blind faith.
Jennifer Bleakley, a neighbor of Hope Reins who met Joey firsthand and followed his story, draws from her experience as a mother and grief counselor to write stories of hope.
