Chris Pratt mourns the death of his beloved pet ram Prince Rupert but says he will 'live in his heart' forever

CHRIS Pratt paid tribute to his beloved ram, Prince Rupert, on Thursday.

The Guardians of the Galaxy star, who has a ranch escape in Washington State, revealed he is "very sad" about the loss of his beloved sheep in a sweet Instagram post.

"It's a solemn day at #StillwaterRanch as Prince Rupert the ram passed away," he captioned a black and white photo of himself and Rupert hugging.

"He took his final rest # right next to the still water of the lake under a 100 year old apple tree. I'm very sad," he said.

He went on to say that the pair had a particularly special bond.

"I was the only one who could wrestle him down to clip his hooves. He was a big cuddler and sported the thickest most beautiful chocolate coat."

Pratt concluded the post, "He will live on in our hearts and at the farm as many of his lambs will enter the flock this year."

The Park and Recreation alum escapes to the country property regularly, and no doubt more so while filming projects have been on-hold during the coronavirus pandemic.

Recently he announced happier news that the farm had welcomed an adorable new calf named BOGO.

"Meet BOGO. Our newest member to the friendly kingdom at #StillwaterRanch," he captioned a pic of the calf and its mom.

He revealed that he hadn't a clue she was even pregnant.

"She was a surprise! A miracle really! Mama heifer was one of our working ladies. She came to us recently to dine on our fine summer grass."

He continued, "We didn't even know she was pregnant!!! Maybe she wasn't! Maybe it was immaculate conception! ARE YOU READY FOR A MIRACLE!? Cue gospel music!!! Nonetheless. BOGO (buy one get one) and Mama will now both join the friendly kingdom."

Hopefully he is better at human pregnancies, as his wife Katherine Schwarzenegger, 30, and he are expecting their first child together.

Chris also shares 7-year-old son Jack with ex-wife Anna Faris.

Chris introduced Katherine to the farm on the San Juan Islands off the coast of Washington state.

As of last year, he had about 160 sheep, 30 pigs and 60 chickens, according to Washington's

One of Prince Rupert's offspring, a ewe named Cacao, won a blue ribbon last year for its high-quality fleece at Fiberpalooza at the Washington State University Country Living Expo.

His next movie – Jurassic World: Dominion – is gearing up to get back to shooting with restrictions for COVID-19.
