Mollie is the first of the beasts of Animal Farm to leave the farm and desert the cause of animal supremacy. Mollie never buys into the belief that those who walk upon two legs are bad. She has always been a favorite of the previous owner of the farm, Mr. Jones, and she much prefers wearing ribbons in her mane to actually working like the rest of the animals. Shortly after the Battle of the Cowshed, in which Mollie hid from the action, she so misses her sugar lump treats that she runs from the farm, where she is seen by the pigeons pulling a cart on another farm. Her former comrades on Animal Farm never speak of her again.

She runs away in chapter 5 as she was easily decieved by one of Mr. Pilkington's men. He gave her a lump of sugar and a few ribbons and she went to Foxwood within a jiffy. She was cupiduous and did not want to work, all she wanted was the pretty things that man provided her with.
