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.
