You'll never not miss him but the pain does get easier to deal with, I promise. Not today or tomorrow, or for many tomorrows yet to come, but time will eventually give you enough distance that you'll be able to remember all the good times and not dwell on this last, bad one.
Life goes on, and for awhile you're going to wonder why the sun continues to shine and why the whole world isn't mourning with you. This is normal, and very much part of the grieving process.
Give yourself time to grieve. You've lost someone important to you. Just because he wasn't human doesn't make his loss any less devastating.
Lastly, my deepest, most heartfelt condolences. Many of us have gone through what you're experiencing, and it breaks my heart to know that someone else has joined our ranks. You're not alone. There are many of us who understand what you're feeling, and that your boy wasn't 'just a horse'.
Godspeed, good horse.
