Storm also has been uneasy and has taken his mares and sons further south. When they meet they decide to take the restless two year olds, Lightning and Baringa, further to the south where they will have to fight for a place with the herds already there.
Lightning and Baringa become competitors; Lightning always trying to steal Baringa's mares. Baringa saves Lightning three times and each time he knows he will have to fight Lightning again next spring! But Baringa becomes the acknowledged Silver Brumby of the South.
