Hey man, don't look a gift horse in the mouth ;-)
(For those non-native english speakers out there, a handy explanation of the idiom :-))
"Horses' gums recede as they age making their teeth appear longer (hence the term, "long in the tooth"). Inspecting the teeth of a horse given as a gift was considered ungrateful. It would mean that recipient is trying to see if the horse is old (undesirable) or young (more desirable)."
