Gumball is likely Sweetgum. Not toxic as far as I know. I put it in and found cross references to Chinaball. You really need id of the plant for a scientific name to determine toxicity. Chinaball would or could also be depending on where you are Chinaberry (highly toxic) or Chinese tallow which isn't considered toxic. The only honeysuckle I know of as toxic and it would be in large amounts is a European variety not commonly found here unless it is an improved cultivar in a garden. Yews are highly toxic so make sure it is a pine and not a yew.

Yeah it's sweetgum I'm pretty sure and I'm positive it's pine. Thank you so much guys!

Took our first ride today and I also let another women who's rode more than me canter her around the field to get her energy out after. She did wonderful!
Turns out it's my goats with the issues. They love her so much they jumped the fence that they have NEVER jumped before to get to her! So I guess I'm going to have some tag alongs on trail rides. They're both trained to follow without leads but they've never jumped the fence before. They just wanted Sally back!
