What is the BEST reason for Antony comparing Lepidus to his horse?
He is trying to make sure Octavius sees the value in having a man who is swift in his movements on the battlefield.
He is using the comparison to imply that, like an animal, he is easily ordered around and manipulated into doing what he's told.
He makes the comparison to justify that, like his own trusty steed, Lepidus, too, can be trusted.
Antony creates the imagery of training Lepidus for their benefit on the battlefield as he would train his horse.
