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.

The Kiwi shepherd’s crook was exactly what it was described as being. It seems very sturdy and strong and worked well even on the goats which are notoriously difficult to catch with a crook. The leg catch seems to work as well, as we had to use that on one animal. My only criticism is that it would be nice if it was just a little bit longer. Or telescoped. But that would make it more expensive.

Must have for any shepherd. This is a game changer when trying to get a single animal for whatever reason. If this was longer it would be perfect.

I recently ordered a KiwiCrook from Premier 1. Shipping was prompt.
Where was this thing for the first 50 years of my life?! It is one tough, well built tool. A bit heavy but I expect it will hold up to actual use. In the next few weeks I’ll be ordering a couple more so I have one in each vehicle. I highly recommend this item.

The crook did not work for us at all. We have pygmy goats and if you could hook it on their legs they would just step out of it. It’s too big.

Handy as a pocket on a shirt! Would be 5 stars if it was a little bit longer.
