I've never tried setting multiple IPs on my ovirtmgmt bridge on the
host.  But you shouldn't have to do that.  It's a bridge, after all, so
all systems that sit on that bridge (which include your VMs) will be

In my case I have an external router that gets used for both of my
networks (I have a 192.168 network as well as a full class-C but they
share physical infrastructure).  So my host only has a 192.168 address,
my engine is on the class-C, and they talk to each other over the
standard network.

In your case it *SOUNDS* like you need to set up an internal router for
the /29.  The way I would do it would be:

      /32           /32         /29    bridge +--- host (/29)
ISP-Router  ------- internal-router ----------+--- VM   (/29)
                                              +--- VM   (/29)

I don't know if you can actually do this.  If not, your other option
would be:

   /32     bridge +--- host (/32)
router -----------+--- VM Router (/29)  (pfsense?)
                  +--- VM (/29)

This may not work for you, either, depending.

WORST case you may need to manually configure a second IP on the
ovirtmgmt bridge on your host:

   /32     bridge +--- host (/32 + /29)
router -----------+--- VM (/29)
                  +--- VM (/29)

I would do this by manually creating the config file on your host:
