1 It was as though the world had turned upside-down.
2 The others said of Squealer that he could turn black into white.
3 And every animal down to the humblest worked at turning the hay and gathering it.
4 At any rate, they remembered that at the critical moment of the battle Snowball had turned to flee.

6 Without saying anything to the others, she went to Mollie's stall and turned over the straw with her hoof.
7 At heart, each of them was secretly wondering whether he could not somehow turn Jones's misfortune to his own advantage.
8 Back in the yard Boxer was pawing with his hoof at the stable-lad who lay face down in the mud, trying to turn him over.
9 He turned to go, then paused and added impressively: "I warn every animal on this farm to keep his eyes very wide open."
10 Muriel, Benjamin, and all the sheep, with Snowball at the head of them, rushed forward and prodded and butted the men from every side, while Benjamin turned around and lashed at them with his small hoofs.
