English term or phrase:sound in wind and limb
I have seen this is an expression used for horses. In the text I am translating, a novel, it is used as a metaphore to talk about the health and condition of the men hired to work for Drake. I had thought of "sanos y salvos", but I would appreciate a more 'colourful' expression!
