Undecided questions
How do I know when do you say "sa" and when do you say "son"?

In example,
un famme et son cheval
un famme et sa voiture

Sa/son means his/hers isn't it?

    Hi !

    we use "Son" for male person or object and "Sa" for female, for exemple :

    Un cheval --> masculin/male so the sentence will be : Une femme et son cheval.
    Une voiture --> féminin/female so it will be : Une femme et sa voiture

    In french we write "femme" but we spell as fAmme !

    ;)

    I'd just like to add that masculine adjectives mon/ton/son (mine/yours/his) are used with feminine nouns too if they begin with a vowel.
    So, for example, you will say mon in front of both ami and amie.

    mon ami = my male friend
    mon amie = my female friend
