5/5 I think that the musclehorns are content for once now that the fights are done. Also, these events happen when 2 or more herds live close to each other. It help prevents all out wars between herds.

Skirmishes along herd borders are fairly rare on Big Egg, both during the period in the caves (which cannot be traversed without the Southern Witch Apostle) and during the era in which the herds inhabited the surfaces (herds generally spread out quite far). But when fights between herds to occur, the increased stress can cause herd budding behaviour, sending hornmothers and horns far away to become a new herd, which controls the size of herds locally.
