A DONKEY from Chichester has been shortlisted for a global industry award.

Lavant House Stables has been recognised in the Equestrian Social Media Awards, as a finalist in the riding school category.

And it’s down to the insightful blog ‘penned’ by resident donkey 
Two Stroke.

This blog, called Donkey diaries, outlines the adventures of the donkey on a 
day-to-day basis and is a big hit online.

This is what has attracted judges attention, as Two Stroke has become a social media hit.

Using social networking sites Facebook and Twitter, the stable’s website has been inundated with Two Stroke fans.

“We would love to win and put the local area and its rural businesses on the map,” said a stables’ spokeswoman.
