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.

This is my second, to replace one 10 or 15 years old. The bendable aluminum shaft "gives" as needed and then can be bent back. (I used the old one for a project that needed a bendable shaft) I have yet to use the new one, and seeing the other reviews, wonder if the new one will bend too easy. I have "fixed" the old one many times, to use it on larger or smaller sheep........I got out of goats years ago. I have several crooks, but this is the one that I use.

Worked fine for years till I had to catch an uncooperative buck. It’s now bent at a 90° angle for the second time in 2 days. Would love to find one that was strong enough to do its job! This goat is 130 lbs.

Worked extremely well to snag both large and small goats in small round catch pen. As long as the animal moves forward works on necks large or small.
But the shaft got bent by a 40lb weaning goat, number 17 of 60 some-odd in for worming. Repeated trips to vice to bend it back straight slowed job down but overall somewhat better than nothing. REALLY liked it till it bent so easily.

I purchased one of these many years ago. That one had a much better hand grip and they used a stronger, better tempered aluminum. This one bends much easier and the leg hook spreads open and allows the leg to slip through. I kept it since I needed something to catch lambs and even this is better than nothing.

Well made and worth the purchase price.
