I need to bring in 5 objects that represent Clover in Animal Farm. I already have a leash to represent being controlled by the pigs. What other objects could I bring in?

Clover, from George Orwell's novel Animal Farm, is a cart horse on the farm. If one were looking to define her through different objects, the following could be used:

1. The number 4. Clover does not understand why the fourth commandment of the animals needs to be changed. This number represents her challenging of the laws.

2. Wings/Feathers: Clover, tries to save Boxer from slaughter. Therefore, she could be represented as his guardian angel.

3. Picture of  a foal: Clover is motherly in her actions and mannerisms. Therefore, she could be represented through the use of a picture denoting a baby horse (foal).

4. Handcuffs: Clover is a slave to her work. Therefore, the handcuffs could represent this idea.

5. Blue collar shirt: Clover is part of the working class. Today, the working class is represented through the denotation of the "blue collar."
