MOTH. A small winged insect of the order lepidoptera. The species is divided into 1500, according to Linnaeus. The angler is aware of too much, it U difficult to bitt him so that he may not, as it is termed, swallow the bitt; when he has too little, it is difficult to lodge the mouth of the bitt rightly in it. To ensure a good mouth, tind a horse with a well raised neck, and if it be large and thick let it also be well turned, and let his reins, legs, and feet also be well shaped. A mouth is termed sensible, fine, tender, light, and loyal. See Horse.
