Ned Andrews

American author of children's/young adult novels. I do not know anything about the author apart from the fact that he appears to have written just four books, all with a western theme, including a dog story and a horse story, which he also illustrated.
His dog story,
Cowdog, is illustrated by fellow pony author and equine artist/illustrator
Sam Savitt.
