Here are the ones I had not heard / seen before

 

bad actor:  "The horse is a bad actor.  It kicks anyone who goes near." always misbehaving

by hook or by crook:  "He will try to get elected by hook by crook."  in any way possible

get one's goat: "The spoiled child got her goat because he wanted everything he saw."  annoy, make angry

in the pink:  "She was in the pink after her fitness exercises."  in good health

That's the way the cookie crumbles.: That's the way life is.
