Mike Robertson

Mike Robertson was born and raised into ranching in Two Dot, Montana. At age 20, he and his brother bought a ranch that they ran for 25 years. After selling that ranch, Mike moved to Benson, AZ for a job on the Dusty A7 Ranch. He and his wife Lisa began a monthly horse auction in 1982, which is still vibrant today. Along with the auction business, they breed and raise AQHA performance horses. Nowadays, Mike writes about his life experiences and the history of “old timers” who are no longer around. His stories also include plenty of good horses that he has known throughout his life.
