Mollie is a pampered carriage horse in the Creature Shop-effects film Animal Farm.

Mollie first appears when informed by Jessie that there is a meeting. Unlike the other animals, who look forward to freedom from humans, Mollie worries about no longer being able to wear the ribbons she treasures.

However, early on, she does join Boxer in finding the food stores, and she marks the spot of Old Major's death with a ribbon. Later, she appears among the animals investigating the farmhouse.

Literary Source

In the original Orwell novel, Mollie represented the upper and middle class Russians that fled to the West. In the book, she ran off to another farm when she is forbidden to eat sugar cubes and wear ribbons on her head; the film adaptation glosses over her actual departure.
