Yay! June Steed is here. There is no mistaking the trend that lotro has a new steed coming out each month. Here are some previous ones...
May: obsidian steed
April: steed of dagorlad
March: steed of nightwood
February: steed of khundolar
As always, every steed in lotro can be found at All the Steeds.
June steed is called Steed of Rhun.
The first thing I will mention is that I recognized the pattern of the Rhun horse outfit because I had seen it before. The Rhun cosmetics were (and mebbe still are) a rare drop from the *corrected* Riddermark lootboxes. I don't know many details of it, but I do know that over the past year I have gotten 2 of the Rhun pieces (hence my recognizing the pattern). When I made my purchase of the horse, the other 2 cosmetic pieces showed up in my inventory. If you have never gotten any Rhun pieces, your purchase of the Steed of Rhun will come with the four pieces seen here: Halter, Caparison, Leggings, Saddle.
On to the pictures!
Steed of Rhun: Here is the basic horse. He is a brown horse with orange outfit.
Warsteed of Rhun - default appearance.
I was initially thrown by all the orangey look of the barding. How would these steed cosmetics dye? The more different looks I see on it, the less I notice the orange. The red and brown hides tend to deemphasize the orange also. By the way, this orange is not in the color palette for barding... it is a dark orange I will call "Rhun orange".
Warsteed of Rhun - Crimson and White:
Here is the Crimson cosmetic with white hide.
Warsteed of Rhun - Ered Luin and Charcoal:
Warsteed of Rhun - Yellow and Red Roan:

Warsteed of Rhun - Crimson and Black Chestnut: Leggings!
Yes, the Warsteed comes with Leggings. I notice that most of my pictures chop off the leggings.Here is a shot of leggings to show that they do dye correctly.
