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.
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.

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.

Very sturdy. Worth the extra money. Foot grabber works well but the goats start kicking like crazy. I use the neck hook most of the time. Really helps with management. I would definitely buy again.

Love it. Saved us a great deal of time sorting. I wish we would have bought one a long time ago.

Works great. I removed the leg trapper arm. It is just a screw and a bolt.
