"Don't look a gift horse in the mouth."

What does this mean?

You can guess a horse's age by looking at its teeth. If someone gave you a "gift horse" and you looked into its mouth, it would be like judging the gift's value or appearing ungrateful.

The gift may not be ideal (like an old horse) but it was free and you can still make good use of it. Be grateful for having been given one at all.
