Brother's friend flicking goat off...?

My brother, who is 15, had four of his football friends over the other day. It was dark and they were all having a bonfire. The one guy ( who I didn't like ) was chasing my goat around and running away for the goat to chase him. He was doing it to look "cool" but my goat saw it as playing so I didn't do a thing. The guy then stopped, turned around and held his two middle fingers up to my goat! He then laughed. I mean, who does that?!
My mom also saw it through the glass door and then she saw the look on my face. She said, "Sometimes they're going to do stuff we don't like."
So I didn't do anything. Should I have said something to the guy? Would you have done something?

P.S. I'm fourteen years old.

Meh, he's a teenage boy. They do stupid stuff.

He didn't hurt your goat, and the animal thought he was playing. So what if he gave the goat the double finger? The goat doesn't know what it means.

If you didn't say anything at the time, why bring it up now?

Well, I know he didn't hurt my goat... actually he was messing with my goat's wiggly/broken horn which needs to stay still for it to grow sturdy, my brother told him about that... Anyway, I just wanted to know what others would do. It just bugs me how immature guys can be.

He's not a guy he is a boy. Big difference. He didn't harm your goat and as far as the horn ever getting stable again I wouldn't hold my breath. It might be better for the goat to have both of them cut off.

You haven't even seen my goat's horn. How would you know? My vet told me first hand that, as long as it's not being messed with or anything, it'll get sturdy. He didn't say those exact words, I just reworded it.

I have seen dozens of goats, sheep and cattle with loose horns and I have never seen one that became firmly attached again. They are animals and they bump into things and keep it loosened up. I'm not trying to offend you but that is my experience. I hope you have better luck.

Yep, Kevin's right. It will grow back, though. And it will be deformed.

As far as flicking off the goat, meh. The goat obviously doesn't care, so why should you?

I don't think its a big deal. The goat doesn't know the difference haha

Okay, haha, thanks guys.

Calm down. Your goat's not harmed, had NO clue what it means, and was having a good time. He's not only a boy - but a teenager - and even a lot of girls would do that these days.
As for the goat's horn, if he did not cause the animal actual pain, then why does that matter, either? A goat with out horns is much safer than one WITH horns. It'll grow partially back, anyway.
