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.
- Catch warp-speed lambs and kids on the run

- Guiding sheep and goats through handling yards
- As an easily seen pointing device to your helpers
We also carry handcrafted crooks and walking sticks which make the perfect gift for any cane enthusiast.
- Neck opening: 3-1/4"
- Leg opening: 1-1/4"

- So named by Premier because a New Zealand sheep family designed and developed it.
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.

This is a great tool to have! I can work my heard by my self with out having to get help! Wish I had bought it years ago.

This works very well. I have goats and sheep and it's easy to snag an animal at the foot trough. In a small area, this and a whip flag make it easier than a rope to catch an animal. A friend of mine has sheep and uses one of the wooden crooks and it works well but I prefer this one mostly because it has the added leg catch for when that is the easier method of snagging an animal.

It works really well.. We find it is a little hard to catch a buck Boer goat or Boer goats with big bones. Works much better then standard design crooks. It would be neat if it came in different colors.

I purchased this for my sister's B'day. She has painted desert hair sheep, as we do & I knew she needed something to make it easier to catch her sheep. I know we really appreciate the ease with which the leg crook can catch a back leg more easily than by hand.
