Why did Moshe refer to the animals that were in the field?


Rashi (on Pasuk 10) and Seforno (Pasuk 20) 1 : The decree was indeed confined to the animals that were in the field, and the G-d-fearing among them took his animals into the house.


Ramban: He mentioned fields because that is where most of the animals were kept. In fact, also those in the houses died as well. 2


As the Torah writes later (in Pasuk 20) in connection with the plague of hail (Refer to 9:20:1:1).


As the Torah indicates in Pasuk 6. It is not clear however, how the Ramban will answer Rashi's Kashya in Pasuk 10.
