The Day of Triumph

  • The harness room was broken up;thebits,the nose rings,the dog chains, and the cruel knives were all thrown down the well.

  • And the reins,thehalters,theblinkers,the degrading nosebags and the whips were thrown on to the rubbish fire.

  • All the animals were jumping with happiness when they saw the whips going up in flames.

  • Ribbons and hats were also flung on to the fire because according to snowball these things were considered as clothes and all animals should go naked.

  • In a few moments they had destroyed everything that could remind them of MR.Jones.

  • After this Napoleon led them to the store-shed and served out a double ration corn to everybody with two biscuits for each dog.
