Hi everyone,

I am reading Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. In chapter 26, there is a paragraph as follows:
[
The man approaching us was stout and prosperous-looking, with a snowy stock showing at the neck of a serviceable grey serge coat, its long tails covering all but an inch or two of his breeches.
]
What does 'a snowy stock' mean? It should be about the clothing of the rider, is that right? Can you help me out? Any help would be appreciated.
