Mr. Jones was not a good farmer and leader to his farm which is why he lost it all to the animals. Mr. Jones allegorically represented the last czar of Russia, Nicholas II. He was a lazy farmer who cared more for his own satisfaction than he did for the well being of the animals who produced on his farm. It was for this reason that the animals revolted, they had not been fed and became fed up with Mr. Jones' neglect. His physical appearance was that of a drunkard. He was always messy looking, tired, and angry. He tried to retake his farm, but he did so unsuccessfully because like everything else he did there was little planning for success and he and his men were run off.
