So I can easily look up the etimology of the words and I understand the western definition.
Which is, “ if given something of value , do not question it.”
It comes from the old way to test a horses Age was to check his teeth. So before you buy a horse, you would “look it in the mouth to check its age
and have a better grasp of its value.
The saying is really assuming that a horse, any horse really has inherent value.
So if you are ever given a horse for free . There is no need to check its teeth. Every horse has value . So you just take the horse without bothering
to check its teeth..
Well I want to know if this saying is universal or if in other, specificlly cultures outside the west, it would be misunderstood.
