This isn't a "gift horse"
and when I looked into its mouth
I couldn't see any teeth.
(when you buy a horse you look at its teeth to make sure you are getting a healthy animal,
but when someone GIVES you a horse, it is rude to "look it in the mouth"
hence - "don't look a gift horse in the mouth")
From this angle and proximity
this horse looks cartoonish and goofy!
Here're a couple of more stately shots
to redeem the poor guy's reputation.
Taken 1 October 2010
outside a national franchise Chinese-American restaurant
in Monterey, California.
