A hand being 4 inches, means your 58 inch horse is 14.2 The '.' is not a true decimal, the number after the dot indicates how many inches above 14 hands (or however many hands) the horse is.
Your 56 inch horse would be 14 hands. Did you measure from the concrete under your horse to the very top of their withers?
If these measurements are accurate, both of your horses are ponies, as 14.2 and under is considered a pony.
