    3)Explain the Windmill Controversy from Snowballs Point of View.
    – snowball wants to create a windmill to make work easier but Napoleon being the hater he is chooses to just pee on the plans . napoleons grudge is making things harder for the whole farm. hes so stuck on ruining snow balls life and turning the farm against him that hes not even looking at the bright side and how much this could help the farm as a whole even making it easy for him

    Explain the Windmill Controversy from Snowballs Point of View:
    As far as how Snowball felt about the windmill, it was simply going to be used to provide energy to raise the moral of the animals by giving them light in their homes as well as heat for the cold winters and other essencial tools that would give the animals more freedom.
