GRAND LEDGE, Mich. (WILX) - A 40-year-old horse in Grand Ledge died Wednesday, the Mitten Misfits Farm Sanctuary confirmed.

JMan, a white horse at the Mitten Misfits Farm Sanctuary in Grand Ledge, was a favorite at the sanctuary.

“It is with great sadness that we let everyone know we lost a farm favorite today,” the sanctuary posted on social media. “Our sweet 40-year-old JMan let us know it was time to say goodbye. While he was ready, we were not. He was so loved and will be deeply missed.”

The Mitten Misfits Farm Sanctuary takes in elderly farm animals when their original owners can’t support them in their old age.

At 40 years old, JMan was roughly 138 years old in human years.

The Mitten Misfits Farm Sanctuary had celebrated JMan’s 40th birthday in March.
