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.

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.
