In the beginning of the story we come in contact with a pig knows as “Old Major” - an elder pig known as being the oldest animal on the farm that, in the last days of his life

bestows the rest of the Manor Farm animals with his prophetic dreams of an upcoming revolution, a rebellion against the owner of the farm a.k.a farmer Jones and his staff.

After the death of the sheep, and Snowball's injury in this battle a military decoration is made and this part's story comes to an end.

A pig known for helping in the rebellion against farmer Jones loses his common sense and transforms to a schizophrenic, power-hungry and a manipulative leader.
