The idea behind the Ra5e step is to prevent 17s mb6s rb7s hc7w rc8s. However, perhaps we needn't worry about this move, since then our elephant could then go to c5 and start making real threats. So maybe Ra5e isn't needed after all.
 
In any case, I still don't think going Ec5 on this move does anything for us. After the b5 rabbit is out of the way on c6, then the threats against the b6 camel might start becoming more serious (and I'm not convinced that this is actually the case).
 
@ Hippo
Why move the silver horse to c6? And, even if one does this, why move the cat to c7? It seems better to take 2 or 3 steps with the elephant instead, doesn't it?

Hippo considers the lines 17g Ec5 17s Hc6 * because the main threat associated with Ec5 is E-Mb5. That said, you make a good point that hc6 as a single step reply is already enough to greatly limit what our elephant can do at c6 while we have our rabbits on a5 and b5, and the silver elephant coming west more quickly than in Hippo's lines indeed seems to nullify any threats we might have dreamed of arising from the horse pull and leave our camel and dog in some danger, eg 17g Ef4wwwn==Ec5 17s hc7s hf3n ee3nw ==Hc6 Hf3 Ed4. So I think we need to get the b5 rabbit to a less obstructive location before trying to do anything around c6 becomes feasible.
