Welcome... find the WIKI at the top of the page and read it. You'll know a lot more after doing so.

Hoses are not a common failure item, but what are common is: water pump, pulleys, expansion tank, expansion tank cap, thermostat. Every 60-80k miles these items should be replaced as a preventative maintenance measure to save you big buck repairs later.

Search on "oh $hit overheated!" or some combination of those words. Many an engine has been claimed by an overheat event.
