Clover accuses Mollie of speaking with men from the neighboring farm, but she nervously denies this fact. Clover does not believe her, and in her stall, he finds "a little pile of lump sugar and several bunches of ribbon of different colours" (Orwell 18). 

Mollie then disappears from the farm, only to reappear several days later pulling a cart with a freshly bathed, trimmed, and beribboned mane. 

However, the important question here is not what happened to Mollie. The important question is why does Mollie decide to abandon Animal Farm? How did Mollie adjust to the changes in her daily life? What made her want to go back to her old ways? Mollie can be most closely related to the White Émigrés of Russia.
