I grew up hearing the term "Never look a GiftHorse in the mouth." Could someone please tell me what in the world a GiftHorse is? And for what reason (unless you're a GiftHorse dentist) would you want to look into its mouth?

Take pride in what you do, for it is a reflection of who you are.

Never Mind.

Don't look a gift (given) horse in the mouth
Meaning

Don't be ungrateful when you receive a gift.

Origin

This comes into the category of phrases called proverbs, that is, 'short and expressive sayings, in common use, which are recognized as conveying some accepted truth or useful advice'.

As horses age their teeth begin to project further forward each year and so their age can be estimated by checking how prominent the teeth are. This incidentally is also the source of another teeth/age related phrase - long in the tooth.

The advice given in the 'don't look...' proverb is: when given a present, be grateful for your good fortune and don't look for more by examining it to assess its value.

Take pride in what you do, for it is a reflection of who you are.
