I have an enumerated list using {enumerate} that looks like the following:

\begin{enumerate}[i.]
\item Cat
\item Dog
\item Horse
\end{enumerate}

But I want to know if it's possible to number the entire list? So that if this is the third list in my document and I want to refer back to Dog, I can call it 3ii and so that my enumerated list would look something like:

3

i. Cat

ii. Dog

iii. Horse

Have a look at the enumitem package. –  Svend Tveskæg Apr 8 '13 at 12:38

The indents may need to be changed, but the structure is here.

\documentclass{article}
\newcounter{listnumber}
\setcounter{listnumber}{0}
\newenvironment{enumeratelist}{%
  \addtocounter{listnumber}{1}%
  \noindent\arabic{listnumber}%
  \renewcommand\theenumi{\roman{enumi}}%
  \begin{enumerate}}{\end{enumerate}}
\parskip 1em\parindent 0in
\begin{document}

\begin{enumeratelist}
\item Cat
\item Dog
\item Horse
\end{enumeratelist}


\begin{enumeratelist}
\item Cat
\item Dog
\item Horse
\end{enumeratelist}


\begin{enumeratelist}
\item Cat
\item Dog
\item Horse
\end{enumeratelist}


\end{document}
