    Probably wouldn't get to mutilated spelled that way.
    If you select this spelling I will expect a payback.
    Preferably in the form of co-ownership.

    Thanks.

    As someone who mans the mike from time to time, my vote is Bounce House. There's no shame in a normal spelling. It definitely makes the announcer's job easier.

    I did a dressage breeding show this weekend - I had a lot of notes about how to pronounce names. Still goofed some of the weird ones. Bounce House wouldn't be slaughtered.

    On second thought, my vote goes to this spelling, although I think you might get the occasional banz haaz. But if you think about it, by the time a horse moves up the levels the announcers start to know them (if you're showing in roughly the same area) and then unusual names are kind of fun. There's a horse up here named Zwelgje (pronounced Zwell-yay, IIRC), that the announcer at one of the big shows up in Canada stumbled all over the first time and now he says it with zest every time the horse and rider come into the ring....I mean he seriously loves that horse!

    Anyhow, that's just a long way of saying that I like Baunzhaus

    Bounce Around
    Beach Ball (I don't know why this one popped in my head LOL)
    Bounce Back
    Jump Around
    Bounce Off
    TTFN
    Alley-Oop
    Olley-Oop

    Or you could just call him Tigger.

    I like Bounce House as well, but I would keep the spelling "normal."

    It really doesn't matter what you call him, since he's pretty spectacular looking.

    I agree! I'm a little over all the over the top spelling of names to make it sound european. Bounce House is a super cute name and kept as bounce house everyone will know how cute it is because they know how it supposed to be said.

    Solitaire. After all, that's his name.

    Is that a standing martingale hooked onto a figure eight? Don't think I've ever seen that before...

    I think Bounce House is kind of cute....and this is the only alternative spelling that made me actually say Bounce House, or at least something close.

    If I was an announcer, I might be all WTF? and WiTH (why in the hell) over a crazy spelling of an easy name, but that would just be me. If it makes you happy and you don't mind the name being butchered occasionally...go for it.

    Solitaire.

    It's his registered name, it's dignified and would sound great being announced in the jumper ring. He may seem too goofy for it now but he's a baby so give him time to grow into it. I'm sure his breeder would appreciate it too.

    Bounce House sounds like a pony name to me.

    I fear that any form of Baunce Haus in any spelling variation is going to be assumed to be a crazy spelling of..."Bounces"...and come out/be understood that way. And, least to me with so many Ponies around, it sounds like it belongs with Giggles, Bubbles, Lollipop and assorted other cutsey poo names for kiddies. I mean, the horse is cute but not that kind of cute.

    I like Ollie by Golly. And it's weird enough. Certainly going to be easy to announce and for folks to remember.
    When opportunity knocks it's wearing overalls and looks like work.

    The horse world. Two people. Three opinions.

    LOVE Ollie by Golly, but the Tigger reference got me onto the Tigger song -
    "They're bouncy, pouncy, flouncy, trouncy, funfunfunfunFUN,
    But the most wonderful thing about Tiggers is I'm the only one!"

    sooo - what about "The Only One"? Kind of plays off of his registered name too...

    My only issue with Ollie by Golly is that it sounds like a breeding reference. Like my horse is by Devil His Due and out of Isle Score. You know what I mean?
