A goat's agility, slim neck and lack of wool mean that neck crooks are often useless.
How to Use
To catch a ewe with newborn lambs on the pasture: First catch the lambs. Then lay a leg crook between the lambs and ewe with the crook head toward the ewe. The ewe will likely face her lambs. Encourage the ewe ever closer. When the ewe's front foot is near, instantly raise the crook and snare her front leg.

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.

Crook is high quality but is too big for cashmere goats. They slip out. Most have to be caught running and I think you could break a leg. For tamer dairy goats, it would work better. Probably would work for sheep. Compared to a wooden neck crook, it is heavier and a little awkward.
This is a nice sturdy crook. I have no problems catching adult goats. The crook portion of the stick is a bit to big to catch kid goats that are under 15 pounds. You can catch bigger kid goats but it takes some patience.
Excellent for catching sheep. It is heavier than other crooks. This product does not work as well on goats. The hook is either too wide or too slippery. I tried to catch numerous goats and kids and they all slipped away. For goats, I use the aluminum leg crook (product #803000) attached to the end of the chestnut wooden crook. Works like a gem on full grown goats as well as young kids.
