"dont look a gift horse in the mouth"
I've been told that in the old days of horse sales/trading, that you could judge the overall health of a horse by looking at its dental health. Poor teeth meant that the horse wasn't in good overall health and therefore not worth as much.
If you were given a "Gift Horse" you would be rude to try to judge the value.
Take a gift for what it is.
ahhhhh, so that is the origin, makes sense
i get what the expression means, jus tnever knew the root of it
