For catching sheep and/or goats by the neck or leg.
It’s both a leg and a neck crook, obviously—but the most important advantage is the self-locking lever on the leg portion that ensures that an animal’s leg, once caught, remains caught until released by human hands.
Triangle point at end of leg shaft allows crook to be used as walking stick over treacherous ground.

For catching small breeds, lambs, sheep with wool, or goats with a neck crook: Once the neck is inside the loop, instantly rotate the crook with your wrist. This applies pressure to both sides of the neck and give you a precious second or two to pull the animal into reach of your hands.

Design is great. But molded handles are difficult to hold in situations requiring a strong grip. Shaft needs a rubber covering. I actually prefer Premier's other crook with the rubber covering and even if the aluminum hoof grabber doesn't fit well, it is easier to work with.

Haven’t gotten a chance to use it yet but looks like it should get the job done. Very pleased with Premier 1 so far. Top notch outfit.

Should have had one of these for a while. If you get one you will use it and like the option of neck or leg catch.

This is my first shepherd’s crook and I like the versatility of it. It’s very lightweight and easy to carry around. Sturdy enough to block my guardian dogs if they get too enthusiastic.

This thing is absolutely amazing. I can’t say enough about it. It is so light and strong! Having come from a traditional wooden neck crook the Kiwi Crook is absolutely way easier and less exhausting to use.
With the next crook up there is a point on the bottom of the foot crook so that it can double as a walking stick. I ranch over hilly terrain and am on my feet constantly. This device is rigid enough to be used as a walking stick.
The first thing I grab when I enter the animal area is this Kiwi Crook!
