"A nods as good as a wink to a blind horse."
To a person who is ready to understand or undertake something, any subtle signalling of it is sufficient. The context is usually of some undertaking that is borderline illegal or of sexual innuendo.
This proverbial saying sounds as if it might be quite modern but it is in fact a 16th century phrase originating in England. The longer version of the phrase is 'a nod is as good as a wink to a blind horse'. It might seem that this is just an elaboration of the shorter version, but it appears that the 'blind horse' version was in fact the original. The earliest examples of the proverb in print all give the fuller version, for example, in the Letters of the English lawyer and writer Joseph Ritson, February 1793:
A nod, you know, is as good as a wink to a blind horse.
It seems intuitive to interpret the longer version as meaning 'neither a nod nor a wink have any purpose, both being equally pointless'.post #50604 of 613446/9/14 at 2:21ampost #50605 of 613446/9/14 at 4:40amQuote:

It's okay, I won't get you started. Thanks for your comments though. I don't trust assistants either which is why I hate shopping and why I come to this forum to get my information/answers.
Initially, the first assistant put me in a size that was too big and said that was best. I then took it a size down and found that was better.
I was told that because of my height (6'4"), that MJ Bale, or any other Off-the-rack brand would not suit and would most certainly require alterations. They said the exception was Anthony Squires.
Something that may fit you at DJS is Hardy Amies. They do a long fitting and quality wise are fine. Structured shoulder though. Good value on sale.post #50607 of 613446/9/14 at 5:06pmpost #50608 of 613446/9/14 at 8:17pmpost #50609 of 613446/9/14 at 10:32pmpost #50610 of 613446/10/14 at 12:20am
Herringbone has 25% off site wide and sale items up for anyone interested (discount can be stacked)
Use code salepreview14
I ended up grabbing that grey houndstooth this time as its even cheaper and I just have a feeling it might work for me as an odd jacket (as you guys said last time prob not but well see). The dark chocolate trench is tempting at that price too.
