Another example of why a formal written agistment agreement is so important.

This article introduces the Impounding of Livestock Act 1994 (the Act). Here, a landholder/agistment provider may claim a lien over the horse if agistment fees are at least 14 days overdue.

A lien entitles the agistment provider to retain possession of the horse until fees are paid. This prevents the owners from moving the horse to alternative premises while fees remain outstanding.
