• In those days the best way to perceive a horses age was to look at the condition of his teeth. I think you can figure out the rest.
  • Back in the day if someone was going to purchase a horse, they would look at its teeth to check the horses condition. So, basically it's saying if someone gives you a horse, don't check it's teeth. Always be grateful for what you are given.
  • Just what the other two said. You can tell the age and partly it health by looking at the teeth. To check a gift out, example: someone gives you a ring and while they are looking you check to see what caret gold it is. It's just bad form.
