Blue Leg Aluminum Crook
Specifically used for "grabbing" sheep and goats by a leg or newborn lambs/kids by the body. Depth of the hook reduces the chance of escape.
A goat's agility, slim neck and lack of wool mean that neck crooks are often useless. Leg crooks are best for goats because goats prefer to face you—so if you wish to catch them in a pen, it works best to do so by snagging a front foot.
Which crook is right for you?Each crook has their benefits. No shepherd is complete without a crook in hand, they save time and command the flock. Visit this link to compare all crook options.
We also carry handcrafted crooks and walking sticks which make the perfect gift for any cane enthusiast.

Perfect for the lambs (neck) and ewes (back leg). As some have said it’s a little heavy, but nothing unmanageable. It’s just made solidly. It’s my go to crook now.

Doesn’t work well on goats. Bent right off the bat.

We bought several of these to keep at various locations on our place so we don’t have to go far if we need to catch a lamb that’s in a pen or pasture that’s a distance from where we have the hook. They are made well & hold up to continued use. They are sturdy enough to grab a big ewe on occasion. The only thing we don’t like is the length when we are working in a close pen. We’re purchasing another one that we plan to cut down to use on lambs when we’re sorting in a small pen.

Life saver with our flock of about 200 sheep and goats. May need to put the hook in a vice to tighten it up a bit. Once we got it adjusted right it has saved us from countless rodeos. I’m ordering a second one as a backup.

Nothing is perfect, but it works the way it’s designed. One size doesn’t fit all, so I bought two and adjusted the head on one of them for smaller sheep and lambs. They bend, but can easily be bent back into shape. Good value for the money.
