Defectivehorn Apostle here, Both you and I are aware of this fact, but for those who don't know I should say this here for you just in case. Himehorns are not just divided into worker caste system, but have internal statis as well. 1/?

Hello, Defectivehorn Apostle!
As always, thanks for your reports. =w=
What follows are some interesting horn tidbits for those not familiar with horns (all from the Defectivehorn Apostle):

DEFECTIVEHORN APOSTLE REPORT START
Horn mothers rank themselves by age and viable eggs hatched, a few do it by horn size. The smallhorn tenders rarely care about ranks, but those who done the best in rising the most smallhorns tend to be seen better than the rest.
The worker class put a lot of value in the greatest skilled worker and who can do the work more than than the less skilled obviously. Yet for the worker class if they have less ability to other types of work, they will focus on one type and be really good at it.
Much like how people with down syndrome are. they can hyper skilled in one thing and be worthless in others. the wild herds rarely are able to toss out completely worthless worker due to low numbers they have.
Musclehorns like wise are the most open about their status of the best of the rest. The stronger and better fighter the better the musclehorn. @muscle_Horn is openly accepted the best I have now. That proves to be a problem as well.
Her recent drive to drink and smoke is looked down on by other musclehorns as weakness. That and a new round of younger muscle horns are grown up Plus the return of spring and the mud that comes with it is a powder keg ready to go off.
I know @muscle_Horn is to prideful to just hand over her title of best musclehorn with out a fight and i think she NEEDS a challenge to keep her morale up as well. Some how I want to see the tournament to start as well.
As for the smallhorns, they don't seem to care about ranks other than who can get the most affection, care and food than others. but I think a pecking order does start early in life.
REPORT END
//////////////////////////
Internal caste status manifests early on in horn development. This is most obvious when a potential leedah hornmther is hatched. Although the hornmothers themselves seem oblivious to it, it seems the haremhorns may have a strong hand in determining the future leedah of the herd by feeding and caring for some smallhornmothers earlier than others. On what basis do they select? Perhaps smell, health, intelligence, cuteness, and other factors... but only the high ranking haremhorns know for sure.

The answer hasn’t got any rewards yet.
