In "Of Mice and Men," there are several similes including, "On the sands of the banks the rabbits sat as quietly as little gray stones" or "...drank with long gulps, snorting into the water like a horse." The first simile compares the sands of the banks to little gray stones and the second simile compares the long gulps that Lennie drinks to a horse drinking.
