Examples from texts

Министр, ведающий природными ресурсами, сказал, что это вполне осуществимо. Гаттерию я получу. Однако я (хотя дареному коню в зубы не смотрят) ответил на это, что одна гаттерия меня не устроит.
The minister concerned said that he was sure they could see their way to letting me have one, to which I replied that I was not interested in having one, although this seemed like looking a gift-horse in the mouth.

Конечно, она не так блестит, как лакированная фотографическая карточка, но я говорю: дареному коню в зубы не смотрят...
It 'asn't the high shine of a photograph, but what I say is, "Never look a gift-horse in the mouth."
