Thick as Thieves by Susan K. Marlow

Andrea Carter would rather ride her palomino, Taffy, than do anything else. But life on the Circle C ranch in 1882 is busy, and Andi is left with little time to prepare for Taffy’s first foaling. When the event finally arrives, it nearly ends in disaster.

School keeps Andi hard-pressed to find time for foal training. And she now has a new problem on her hands–Macy Walker. The new girl’s crude behavior bring storm clouds into Andi’s life, as does the news that cattle rustlers have moved into the valley.

When the cattle thieves turn to stealing horses, Andi’s only hope for recovering her precious colts lies with Macy. Can Andi trust this wild girl? Does she have a choice?
