Croatian term or phrase: "Na zadnjoj štengi se penjezi broje"
Ovaj izraz mogu samo da nađem na netu upravo u članku gde sam ga pročitao, pa mi treba pomoć oko smisla. (štenga i penjezi znam šta su :)).

Nagađam da je smisao nešto poput, "Don't count your chickens before they're hatched" ILI "nemoj brojati pare pred svima nego se sakrijte negde". Ako se radi o ovom drugom ili nečem trećem, onda ima li neko ideju za sličan idiom na engleskom?

Hvala.

Hey, I like it :) I didn't use it in the end because the 'counting your chickens' was more appropriate just because the context was about money, but I would definitely use this too in the right context! Actually, the meanings are slightly different, thinking about it, but a similar idea.
