Iron Crooks from the Blacksmiths Forge.


The iron crooks were forged by blacksmiths.  You can still buy a aluminum version from livestock supply companies in the US.  I once saw a nice iron one forged from an old shot gun barrel.  Some leg crooks of iron were on very long poles and could be used to reach out from a distance and select a sheep from the flock.
