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.

The Kiwi Crook was recommended to my by a friend who has a fair sized hair sheep operation. We only have a few ewes and a fair catch system that works pretty well for us. Even with that though, trying to catch sheep and lambs that are in the mob is tricky.
We did our first ear tagging today and having the Kiwi Crook was SO much easier on my back. I wasn't trying to bend or jerk downwards in an attempt to grab a collar, neck or leg. Just hooked who I needed, moved up the crook and grabbed the animal. I will definitely recommend it to fellow sheep and goat friends. :)

Works great. No problems with either the neck crook or the leg catch.

As I've aged, I'm not as agile as I once was. My kids moving away from the farm makes it even harder to work lambs & goats. But I was able to catch a nearly feral goat all by myself with the Kiwi Crook. It works just like they say it does!

Overall a good crook for my sheep. It's just a little shorter than I expected for the price. However should last me a long time. Great quality.
