It isnt a claim, he shows it cant be done by livestock.

It's a claim. Not a proof. He just rattled the ring a bit.

He didnt rattle the ring, he showed that upward force
on the horseshoe, the only thing livestock can do, doesnt
lift the vertical thing that is attached to the horseshoe.

And thats obvious from the basic physics, that it wouldnt
lift it, it would jam in the outer and not rise.
