Boxer distinguishes himself as a powerful, tireless employee, favourite through all of the animals. The pigs turn into the supervisors and administrators of the animal employees. On Sundays, the animals meet within the giant barn to hear Snowball and Napoleon debate a couple of issues on which they appear by no means to agree.
