My suggestion would be the "Pets and Mounts" addon @ Curse.com (http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/pets-and-mounts)

This addon has a function that allows you to create "sets" of favorite pets. You set the set you want to use currently as your default set and then when you use it's random summon button - it'll only summon pets from that set. It also has a auto switch pet timer you can adjust.

The addon offers the same options for mounts.

To create a set...

1. Go to Game Menu > Interface > Addons > Pets and Mounts > Set Options
2. Scroll down to Create Set; type in the set name.

To add pets to a set...

1. Go to Game Menu > Interface > Addons > Pets and Mounts > Companion List
2. Look through the list and mark the pets you want added to the currently selected set.

To change your set...

1. Go to Game Menu > Interface > Addons > Pets and Mounts > Set Options
2. Look for Active Set (near the top); choose your set from the drop down menu.

To set the auto summon timer...

1. Go to Game Menu > Interface > Addons > Pets and Mounts > Companions
2. Look for Re-Summon (near the top); Select the time you want from the drop down menu.

Finally, if you want to bind the random selection option to a key binding...

1. 1. Go to Game Menu > Interface > Addons > Pets and Mounts > Bindings
2. Set Random Companion key binding
*left-clicking the minimap icon on clicking on the pet icon also summon pets

There is also an option to only allow a specific group of pets or mounts for an individual zone.

This might not be *exactly* what you are looking for, but I hope it helps :D

Alternatively if you just want to summon from the pets already set as favorite in your journal you can use /randomfavoritepet (or) /rfp to do that. With macros you are pretty stuck with either the random or random favorite option though.

I know that the addon Livestock has the ability to create summon lists (which can also be keybound). I'm not familiar with the addon though so I can't provide much more helpful info. You may poke at it and see what happens though :D

It hasn't been updated in a bit though it looks like.

Perhaps OPIE? Makes a ring of hotbar like options for you to then select. I've used it in the past, mostly for what you're wanting as far as a pet summon/mount summon.

Right now I use PetLeash and GoGoMount and Speakinspell.

With this combination I'm always treated to a random pet when I land or a random mount when I mount. I've keybound GoGoMount to a button on my mouse so I just mount up while Speakinspell gives a fun emote every time, announcing that I've mounted said mount.

I like being surprised at who is keeping me company and what I hop onto.

Oh I forgot about oPie! I love that addon! When I switched computers I never reinstalled it /scurries off to curse.com

I'd imagine it would be perfect for what Tinibree is looking for.
