Satire means to ridicule the recklessness and weaknesses of mankind. Satire can be done through words or through art (cartoons) or through acting. Orwell is able to apply satire to this novella by using common terms we usually associate with humans to the animals, for example "Clover was a stout motherly mare approaching middle life, who had never got her figure back after her fourth foal."

(pg 2) we associate the quote; 'never got her figure back' mainly with women and not animals meaning that the women don't get their figure back after they have given birth.

For an animal to have a stripe down their face, most humans see that as natural because animals do not have a natural skin colour where it is colour all over, they have different coloured patches resembling their skin.
