In the early parts of the book, Snowball is a hero of the animals' revolution.  He is, in particular, the main hero of the Battle of the Cowshed.  But then he loses out to Napoleon in a contest to see who will rule the farm.  Napoleon chases him off the farm and starts to blame everything that goes wrong on him.  Here are some examples:

  • He steals the corn
  • He knocks over pails of milk
  • He breaks eggs
  • He tramples on the seed beds where young plants are
  • He is chewing the bark off of young trees.

Basically every setback is blamed on him so that no one will blame Napoleon for them.
