We have more oats, hay, and turnips than ever! Our living conditions are far better than they were in Jones's time! Not to mention, now we're free from working as slaves.
We don't even remember what life was like before… but we'll believe you.
We can't be around them at all… and they even get to wear ribbons.
Haha, they must stand aside for us
Is it just me, or are the pigs getting fatter than ever?
Our rations were cut again..
Life is hard, and the animals are almost always cold and hungry. However, they still believe they ware better off than the old days, due in part to Squealer claiming they are more prosperous than ever and that unlike in the days of Jones, they have freedom.
Yes, we are our own masters and work for ourselves!
Long Live Napoleon
This parade is so incredible, I almost forgot how hungry I am!
The newly-born pigs on the farm are instructed by Napoleon, discouraged from playing with other animal species, and exercise in the garden. It is soon decreed that all animals must stand aside when facing a pig, and that all pigs are permitted to wear ribbons on Sundays.
After death you'll go to Sugarcandy Mountain, where there's loads of food and you can play all day!
Rations are continually decreased for the farm animals, and they are prevented from using lanterns to save oil. Only the pigs seemed to still be comfortable, well-fed, and even putting on weight.
The very idea of Boxer being sent to the knacker's is ridiculous! He sadly died in the hospital.
I can't wait to collect the money for more whiskey.
Despite the hardships of life, there are far more songs, speeches, and processions on the farm than before. Once a week a "Spontaneous Demonstration" would be held, a parade glorifying Animal Farm and the rebellion— at this time the animals could temporarily forget their empty bellies.
Moses reappears on the farm in the summer, and the hungry and tired animals are more inclined to believe in him and Sugar Candy mountain. Though the pigs still declare Moses's stories to be nonsense, they allow him to stay on the farm with an allowance of a gill of beer per day.
Life is so hard right now, maybe there really is a better place after death...
Boxer collapses one day while working, and is taken to the knacker's on the pretense of going to the hospital. Napoleon quickly refutes that he went to the knacker's, and Squealer claims that he died peacefully in the hospital. Boxer has a banquet in his honor, and the pigs somehow acquired the money for a new case of whiskey.
Of course— we were silly to think Napoleon would send him to the knacker's.
