B. Communist leaders, when they visited villages, preferred to see cows and pigs.

C. Although a working horse was just about tolerable, the communists were right to be wary.

D. Peasants from Poland to the Hungarian Pustza preferred their horses to party dogma.

6) “A farmer’s pride is his horse; his cow may be thin but his horse must be fat,” went a Slovak saying.


The first sentence compares horses and communism - and says it's a poor match. This is because fine horses bespoke of the nobility the party was supposed to despise. So, the communist leaders, when they visited villages preferred to see cows and pigs to horses. There is good reason for the leaders to be wary of a horse, even though it was a tolerable animal. The peasants, on the other hand, cared not much for the party dogma and preferred their horses. They went by the adage, "A farmer's pride is in his horse, his cow may be thin but his horse must be fat". The correct order of sentences is, therefore, 1-A-B-C-D-2.
