Larry Hatteberg made the one-hour trip to Marion earlier in the week to do a feature story about Larry “Farmer” and Deana Olsen. The Olsens live west of Marion and are known for their miniature horses. The Olsens’ “Tiny Trails” operation on their farm allows people to come out and lead a horse through a mile of trails around the farm. Their other horse operation, Cottonwood Miniatures, allows the Olsens to breed, train, and sell horses.
