Riley Prescott

Okay, spoiler alert: behind-the-scenes secret stuff exclusively for Andi fans on this blog. Nowhere
else will I give this away. "Riley returns." I won't tell you in which book he returns, but be assured he's back. And I need your help . . .

In case you haven't heard of Riley Prescott, he's Andi's friend from the Circle C Beginnings. Andi and Riley are "best friends" for the two years he lives on the Circle C ranch with his Uncle Sid, the ranch foreman. The two are inseparable. Click the "read more" to see pictures and to, well, read more.


When Riley's mother gets well, Riley leaves the ranch and rejoins his family. His father is a captain in the Army, so off they go to various forts throughout the West. After 8 years of being gone, he returns to the Circle C.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find some pictures of Riley at 18 or 19. You can see what the little Riley looks like. Good luck! I need an older Riley. I have some good ones simmering in a file folder, but I'd like your input. As before, simply copy and paste links to pictures that would look like an older version of this boy. Thanks a bunch! 

It appears to Andi that Riley can do just about anything:
He can trick ride:

He always comes to Andi's rescue.

He can lasso a dog.

And a calf . . . well, almost:

He knows all the good spots in the hayloft where the spiders hang out.

And he knows all kinds of fun you can have with a fly and a piece of hair!

  3. Here's one I found! But it's in black and white. There are probably pics of him in color too. I think his hair is a lighter brown tho.

    1. Yes, well, that is Eugene Barkley, and it is not quite what I imagined Riley to look like. Every time I saw the pic, I would end up thinking, "Augh! Gene Barkley!" LOL

    1. He tells Andi (in the book) "I am well into my nineteenth year."
      Which means he's 18 and a half.

    1. Well . . . I remembered the doctor in these books is John Weaver, so I had to come up with something different for Riley. :-)

    4. Here is the one-sentence summary:

      When city cousin Daniel is sent to the Circle C ranch in hopes that hard work will change his delinquent behavior, he endangers both Andi’s life, and the life of her mare, Taffy.

Let Andi know what you think!
