It is with great sadness that we are reporting that our beloved Lexi passed

away today. Click here for background story.



She was an amazing spirit who gave the gift of eyesight to other horses by

allowing us to do the first-ever vitrectomy in North America. Her eyesight

was restored, but she left more than that.



The Lexi Fund was established in her name at the LSU Equine Health Studies

Program in Baton Rouge, Louisiana right after her surgery in the fall of

2006.



Professor Hartmut Gerhards with the Clinic for Horses of Ludwig-Maximilians

University of Munich, Germany, traveled half-way around the world to perform

a vitrectomy on a horse at the Louisiana State University School of

Veterinary Medicine. Gerhards was assisted by Dr. Bettina Wollanke of

Munich, and Eric S. Storey, DVM, MVSc, Dipl. ACVO, assistant professor of

ophthalmology at the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine.



We appreciate her team of veterinarians, her pasture mates and everyone who

attended to her. Please know she was the happiest, healthiest and most

pampered horse on the planet until she passed.



We hope that you will continue to help Lexi  keep helping other horses by

supporting the The Lexi Fund whenever you can.
