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.

Useless to catch katahdins or dorpers, was really disappointed. Waste of my money.

This crook so far I have not been successfull in catching any legs... I raise dorpers and the leg opening is a bit to wide for their legs. However I bought it because I watched a video of a guy catching young lambs with it and wanted to give it a try. It works great catching lamb necks and bellys depending on how old they are. Trying to chase down 50 lambs you cant get close to is a struggle and this just simplified my life a whole bunch!. I'm sure it will work if I try and catch a hock instead of an ankle but the neck crook for my older sheep seems to be easier to use for that anyway.

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.
