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.

I must say that when I first got this crook I was a little disappointed. The ends felt kind of heavy and the shaft small in hand - not like the light chestnut crook that I had ruined by leaving it out in the rain. But last night I had a total change of heart. I had to catch and sort out some 6 week old lambs that I had lured into a holding pen. You know how quick lambs are, but this crook worked like magic. The foothold end is set at a right angle to the hook and forms a natural handle that give you leverage to you leverage to twist the hook after snagging the animal's neck. I was able to catch and reel in the lambs even though they struggled like mad. I haven't had occasion to use the leg hook yet, but I already love this crook.
