Golden Horse is completely correct, grief is very personal and many people deal with it differently - so stop googling your feelings, and trying to make sure it's normal. How you are feeling is normal, and it's your own.
About your Uncle and his colt, no it never goes away. Reading this brought tears to my eyes about my dog, he's been gone two years now. I never stop missing him, never stop wishing for just one extra day - but what does change is the RAW pain, that crushing pain where you don't feel like you can do anything, think anything, ... anything - that goes away. They leave a little hole in your heart that can never be filled, but it can be eased by a new hole, that you were never aware of when you get a new animal.
Sending gentle hugs and a toast to Indy who is grazing in the best pasture waiting for you.
