I've never had that message, even when I was down below 50 horses. Is it a pop-up, a ringleader advice line, or what?

Also, what effect (if any) does hiring outside your clan have, or offering an additional 1 cow of hiring bonus? I've never seen a better number on the slider, or had any other discernable effect from doing anything other than hiring from suitable carls.
