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.

This crook is quite heavy and it is also susceptible to bending. It is also a bit short for catching a sheep that has wedged itself into the middle of a group. I recommend buying just the head and putting it on a wooden handle.

It works very well on larger goats. On kids, you have to hook them above the knee as the hoof will slip out. Where this thing really shines is catching geese. It fits perfectly around the neck. For larger ones, it's far better than a fish net.

Sturdy and a little heavy, it works on larger goats, too large of and opening for smaller ones. I will be repairing the broken fiberglass handle on our old aluminum one. This one is not a good replacement for it.

I kept hesitating on buying a leg crook for many years, only used a neck crook. Now that I bought this one, I can't believe it took me so long before I got a leg crook. It works great! I am able to come up behind a sheep and catch it much more easily than before.
Also, I can't believe how quickly I received my order. Thanks for your speedy service.

WOW! No more chasing goats! We worked our small herd in less than half the time usually spent because all we had to do was turn around and hook one. This crook paid for itself in saving time and less aggravation. My only regret is that I did not buy one a couple of years ago.
