Mr Jones treats the animals poorly, they work like slaves and are starved. He takes and sells everything the animals produce and gives nothing in return
The animals decide they are fed up with Mr Jones and Old Major proposes that they rebel against him and create a new farm were every animal is equal.
After the animals rebel, Mr jones comes back with others. The animals were aware this would happen and had a strategy prepared. They win the battle and chase Mr Jones away.
To the animals, everything on the farm seems great, even though they are being manipulated by Napoleon. And after being tricked, Frederick attacks the farm and blows up the windmill out of jealousy of Animal Farm's success
After the battle, the animals are devastated. They have to spend another year working on the windmill. During this process, boxer collapses. He gets better but napoleon tricks the animals that he's going to the vet but boxers really going to be slaughtered.
Years have passes and the animals can no longer tell if the conditions they live are worse or better than with Mr. Jones. They cant remember. When the pigs start walking on two legs and wearing clothes, Benjamin and clover get suspicious and look at the commandments were they find "all animals are equal, but some are more equal than others."
