I have three (oldest is 4) and keep one by each gate. I bent the aluminum ones when catching sheep (we think there are better methods and equipment for that) and these lightweight crooks are easy to carry while feeding, moving a flock, catching lambs, opening gates, or for safeguarding against rams when ewes are "calling". A wonderful everyday shepherd's tool!

This crook is lightweight and works great for catching ewes, even wooled ewes. It was my first crook and after having it, I don't know why I waited so long to get one. They are very helpful tools. The reason for only three stars? I've had two and they both only lasted about a year before the fiberglass handles broke. One broke when a 70 lb lamb that was caught ran by a post, breaking the shaft in the middle. A good wrench, but it wasn't a big lamb. The other had something set on the end, splitting it. So no, it wasn't like I just dropped them and they broke, but I did expect something used for handling livestock to hold up a bit better. I think next time I'll try a different crook.
durable and lightweight
The hook broke off the first time we used it. We'll stick to the aluminum crooks.
I have bought two and both had there handles were broken with in a month by young wild ewes.
I also found this crook useless if you tried to use it to move a lamb in a jug closer so you can pick it up.
