I have used what I believe are Progesterone injections (labeled P4) after insemination instead of Regumate, but for the same purposes. Can anyone tell me what this drug actually was, brandnames, typical dosage?
Would this be suitable for mare to be shipped over a long distance (such that giving regumate in inpractical) that was just inseminated and confirmed in foal? At what interval of days should the injections be given?

There is no brand name - P4 is progesterone, and there is no commercial preparation available in the US. It must be obtained from a compounding pharmacy. In Canada, a commecial preparation is available, and it is marketed as Centra-Progestin.
In order to maintain elevated systemic levels, it is necessary to give the progesterone daily, so it is unlikely that it would be suitable for your needs.
