Four years ago they    their red and green wooden caravan to Holland, where they bought their first horse, Offy. The caravan is  , large enough for David, his wife, Kate, and their three children, Torcuil, Fionn and Eilidh, and    things like the children's school books. Offy    to pull them as far as France, where Traceur, a stronger horse, had to  .

Traceur can walk about 18 kilometres a day, but the    has not always turned    as the Grants planned. In Slovenia they became caught up in a civil war and the 14 days they had intended to    there became 14 months. Life in the    air has not always been easy. They have suffered    of cold (-28 °C) in Kazakhstan, and of heat in Mongolia's grasslands.
